The lecture course introduces central topics, terms and objects of cultural studies as well as theories and ideas central to English Studies as a whole. We will focus on different concepts of culture and its relation to mass media, cultural memory and questions of representation and identity. Various examples from British and American cultures are used to illustrate these terms and concepts. The second part of the course presents core historilcal developments within British and American cultures. 

The tutorials accompanying the lecture course offer the chance to discuss the contents of the course in a smaller group. There will be a 60-minute final exam.
