Period: Spring and autumn
The module aims to develop students’ interdisciplinary teaching competencies in English and social studies based on Cultural Studies.
Cultural Studies is an interdisciplinary field that is concerned with culture and politics with a focus on processes, opportunities for action, historicity, and subjectivity, where, among other things examines the representation of different kinds of identities, gender, sexuality, race, class, education, religion, age, etc. Culture is seen as constructed in discourses (non-essentialist view of culture), which examine why certain discourses exist in particular contexts and what consequences it may have.
The module deals with culture, norms, society, and knowledge of the world in a global citizen perspective.
