The MCLLC faculty in the Cultural Studies cluster explores global arts, texts, performances, discourses, ideas, movements, relationships, institutions, and material objects, to name a few, from multidisciplinary perspectives. We examine how these cultural practices have been expressed within changing political, economic, and social contexts. In exploring the multitude of cultural practices, we address questions of nationhood, identity, race/ethnicity, class, gender and sexuality, power, history, post/colonialism, post/modernity, globalization, the environment, and other issues of theoretical significance.
