9-Week Introduction to Cultural Studies free course

Introduction to Cultural Studies: Culture, Technology & Power

Free Course

Taking place over 9 Tuesdays, 6.30-8.30pm, 29 September – 15 December 2015

Who has power in our cultures and how does it work? How do the ideas we
have about what is ‘normal’ or ‘natural’ influence our decisions? What
exactly is technology and how does it affect social change? Cultural
Studies makes use of techniques from philosophy, history, sociology, human
geography, anthropology and political and critical theory to examine these
questions in the context of contemporary popular cultures.

This course is an introduction to the subject taught by senior academics
moonlighting from their day jobs at the University of East London. The
course is free because we believe not only that education should be free
but that knowledge is a crucial weapon in the war against all forms of
inequality. If you’ve never been to university, have been but miss the
critical debates or are curious about who decides what counts as knowledge
in the first place, we’d like to meet you.

The course is written and delivered by Dr Debra Benita Shaw and Dr Stephen
Maddison, Co-Directors of the Centre for Cultural Studies Research, and
hosted at Open School East.

Numbers are limited so e-mail info at openschooleast.org to book your place.
