Culture Across Space and Time (V3049)
15 credits, Level 4
This module examines the relationship of culture to place, difference and identity. Drawing on key theoretical debates and case studies, culture will be explored in the context of social change and crises, incorporating topics such as:
- the impact of globalisation and transnationalism on everyday life
- the impact of consumption on behaviour and life choices
- the changing relations of multiculturalism, racism and marginalisation
- and the representation of culture in public spaces.
Throughout the module cultural issues will be deciphered through the prism of racial, ethnic, class and gender relations at local and global levels.
