Introduction to Cultural Theory (Seminar)

Dozent/in: Chiara Stefanoni

wöchentlich | Donnerstag | 10:15 - 11:45 | 03.04.2023 - 07.07.2023 | C 5.311 Seminarraum

Inhalt: This course will provide a reasoned introduction to pivotal and foundational approaches in the field of cultural theory, particularly from within a philosophical tradition. Following a chronological as well as a thematic path, we will deal with the multi-discursive concept of culture as well as the conditions under which "culture" became a topic and a question. Accordingly, we will start with "classics" of philosophy (Neo-Kantian cultural theories, Nietzsche), then we will dig into different angles of analysis from which make sense of cultural phenomena and, importantly, their material conditions of possibility, thus working at the intersection of theoretical and socio-politcal dimensions. These angles include: (neo) Marxist analysis (Marx, Frankfurt School's critical theory, Althusserian school), poststructuralist analysis, feminist analysis, and post-colonial analysis. Thematically, we will pose under scrutiny in particular problems of ideology, emancipation, and subjectivity.
