FOLK 706 401 Culture/Power/Identities

R. Lukose
Seminar: Thursday 2:00-4:00

Cross-listed with EDUC 706, URBS 706, COML 706, ANTH 704

This course will introduce students to a conceptual language and the theoretical tools to analyze the complex dynamics of racial, ethnic, gender, sexual, and class differences. The students will critically examine the interrelationships between culture, power, and identities through the recent contributions in cultural studies, critical pedagogy and post-structuralist theory and will explore the usefulness of these ideas for improving their own work as researchers and as practitioners.
