About Critical Theory and Cultural Studies at University of Nottingham

This is a truly interdisciplinary course that will give you a comprehensive introduction to the critical tradition that shapes today's Human and Social Sciences, as well as the opportunity to apply theories to contemporary cultural phenomena.

Approaches to issues of representation, identity, power, meaning and ideology thus include, but also extend beyond, the established British Cultural Studies paradigm.

The course builds on the scholarly relation between the theoretical and applied or practical aspects of research in the humanities, thereby preparing you for theoretically informed research in disciplines beyond Cultural Studies.

You will be able to draw on the expertise of the teaching team in areas such as literary theory, continental philosophy, psychoanalysis, cultural studies and political theory.

This course will certainly appeal to you if you are a Cultural Studies or Humanities graduate with an interest in further studies that emphasise theoretical approaches while maintaining a focus on their application to cultural events and practices.
