Transnational Cultural Studies

What are the cultural implications of globalization? How do power and privilege shape the production, circulation and consumption of popular culture across national borders? Transnational Cultural Studies will give you the tools to both interpret cultural texts such as language and images and to understand how meaning is created across different national communities.

Exploring race, gender, sexuality, and disability from a transnational perspective, will help you become a globally engaged citizen and professional with a better understanding of the shared elements of the human condition. You will be able to move beyond monocultural thinking and be aware of the blind spots that hinder meaningful intercultural communication and mutual understanding.
