SOCS 201: Intro to Cultural Theory

This course provides an introduction to cultural theory as it has evolved to reach its present prominence in visual practice. Through a study of a number of the more influential schools of thought which have come to us from the social sciences-structuralism, semiotics, Marxism, psychoanalysis, postmodernism, etc.-and the social contexts which shape them, students will develop a better understanding of contemporary thinking in design, media and visual art.
