Description:
*Culture Concept* [Track C] While culture has become a buzzword in the social sciences, the category of culture is not unproblematic, either as an object of analysis or as a framework of explanation. The question of what culture is, and how it should be studied is far from being resolved. This course is organized around a set of arguments and debates that animate contemporary theory and research on culture. In readings and discussions students critically explore themes that emerge from theintersection of society, culture, and history: the culture concept; the status of meaning, agency, and structure in social scientific analysis; the relationship between power, domination, and resistance; and cultural critique.
