Course summary

Cultural Studies engages critically with the study of everyday life – with the ‘deep ordinariness’ of the world.

Studying cultural consumption, popular culture, multicultures, cultural values and the radicalism or conservatism of cultural politics involves thinking about culture as it is felt and lived. Cultural Studies at Sussex can be researched using a humanities (textual) approach or social scientific (empirical) methods, or a combination of both.

The Sussex Centre for Cultural Studies is the largest research centre at the University, with workshops, conferences, and events with leading external speakers - all of which you’re welcome to attend. Our leading scholars apply innovative methods and cutting-edge approaches to culture, power, and agency. Projects can be co-supervised by faculty in another school as appropriate.

For a PhD, your research work makes a substantial original contribution to knowledge or understanding in your chosen field.
