|Certificates: Social, Cultural, and Critical Theory|
This course will introduce students to some of the major figures and ideas in the interrelated fields of social, cultural, and critical theory. The course combines two distinct components: biweekly lectures by Wesleyan faculty (open to everyone) and two weekly discussion meetings (only for enrolled students). The lectures will provide succinct introductions to selected theorists and will reflect the particular intellectual interests of the lecturers; the discussion sessions will provide in-depth textual analysis, debate, frequent writing assignments, and thorough feedback.
