LENG-2950 Estudios Culturales II

This course attempts is structured from a vision intended to punt in context and to politicize cultural and academic practices. In this way, we do not rely on a specific and official vision of Cultural Studies, neither from a recipe about how the apply or evolve. In response to the constant need of putting academic practices into context , this course will be developed around specific issues that cultural studies have analyzed and been involved with along their path. Through this course, three issues that are the cornerstone of the cultural studies will be approached, that is to say, the connection between culture and power: (I) about the different updates of capitalism, (II) about the subject, the truth and the power, (III) about structured societies, and (IV) the question about what is popular.
