Introduction to the Study of British Culture
BeschreibungThis book aims at giving students a comprehensive and comprehensible overview of the main theories, methods, and fields of interest of British cultural studies. Taking the city of Oxford and its manifold cultural meanings as a case study, the book covers issues of representation, identity, class, ethnicity, gender, and (new) cultural geography. Combining the functions of a primary text reader and a conventional text book, this innovative volume will help students to derive analytical tools from the theory excerpts and to test their own approaches to the various forms of cultural texts against these theories. Throughout, texts and images are introduced by short explanatory passages and accompanied by suggestions for a step-by-step analysis and further reading, which makes the collection suitable for BA as well as MA students.
