Cultural, Social and Political Thought

University of Victoria

The Cultural, Social and Political Thought (CSPT) program has contributed to the unique intellectual ambiance of the West Coast of Canada since it was founded in 1988. CSPT faculty members herald from a range of disciplines including English, history, political science, environmental studies, and sociology. The CSPT program is dedicated to cross-disciplinary engagement in such areas as: international relations theory and globalization; political theory and philosophy; Marxist and post-Marxist thought; post-structuralism and deconstruction;
literary and aesthetic theory; political ecology and ecofeminism;
approaches to social movements; post-humanism; theories of sovereignty, governmentality, the state, and the city; feminist thought, gender/sexuality studies, and masculinity theories; surveillance studies; and phenomenology.

The CSPT program upholds the values of fairness, equity, and inclusiveness. It promotes a collective space built on collegial relations, friendship, and egalitarianism among its faculty and students.
