SOCL907: Social and Cultural Theory
Module convenor: Bulent Diken
Examine the ways in which different social theoretical perspectives approach their objects, and to consider the consequences of these differences.
The focus will be on the newer social theories.
We 'think with' a single theory/theorist, dealing with its most central concepts, assumptions and ideological implications.
This course is about social and cultural theory with emphasis on three main topics: an investigation of the nature of the object of social theory, that is, the social; key issues in contemporary social and cultural theory and the relationship between social theory; modernity and postmodernity.
One 5000-word essay.
The themes of the course are well designed and taught. At both very beginning and the end of the course, the tutor has illustrated an overarching structure of the social theories, so it was helpful for the students to grasp the whole ideas and to build connections between different theorists. -Yan Jin
