M.A. in Cultural Studies and Critical Theory

McMaster University

The objective of the M.A. in Cultural Studies and Critical Theory (CSCT) at McMaster University is to allow students to engage the heterogeneous body of theories and practices associated with cultural studies and critical theory in the critical investigation of culture. “Culture” here may be understood to comprise the objects, texts, practices, theories, and concepts that have animated, shaped, and unsettled individual and social experience both past and present. The M.A. in CSCT will permit students to examine a wide range of cultural forms and expressions, from influential philosophical texts and avant-garde theoretical reflections, to materials and practices that have been typically overlooked in university study (e.g. television, cinema, cyberculture, and the practices of everyday life). The program allows students to engage in interdisciplinary research on topics such as gender, sexuality and the body; class, race and ethnicity; postcolonialism, diaspora, and globalization; identity, subjectivity, and representation; community and justice; ideology and power/knowledge; and technology and culture.
