This programme takes a philosophical and theoretical approach to cultural studies, offering an in depth study of major paradigms of cultural analysis, including critical theory, deconstruction and psychoanalysis. The programme also provides an analysis of the historical formations of contemporary cultural structures and of cultural studies itself as a reflexive critical response to modernity in its long history. Emphasis is given to practices of close reading and the question of textuality. Key issues of modernity and postmodernity, the postcolonial, subjectivity and sexuality, as well as the innovative study of both visual and acoustical culture, music, voice, cinema and popular cultures are integrated into both theoretical and substantive studies.
