Culturally-centered Approaches to Development

Critical Cultural Approaches

The course explores the theoretical foundations of critical cultural approaches to the study of communication, the methodological and theoretical issues  embodied in critical cultural approaches, and the questions of praxis that connect critical cultural theory to a politics of social transformation and social change across the globe. The key question we will engage with emphasizes the possibilities of transformation in the backdrop of the transnational dominance of neoliberal hegemony, and the role that communication research and theory play with reference to such transformations.
