Cultural Studies and Art History

Analysing culture: You cannot be part of contemporary society without being affected by the stream of ads and images of all kinds, in various media. We are all caught up the network of communications, whether in face-to-face encounters, on Facebook or by way of email. All this is both 'modern' and 'cultural' and it is something we all do, cope with, and make sense of. Cultural Studies addresses culture in more theoretical, analytical and critical ways seeing it in a broader context and evaluating its impact on the way we experience our lives and organise and govern our societies. Art History: Within the Art History element of your degree, you study artists, art movements and a range of artistic media, including painting, sculpture, photography, print media, installation and multimedia. You will have the chance to put your knowledge into practice and develop work-related skills, such as gallery management and curating, art collecting and dealing, as well as practical writing skills for the media. The School of Arts at Canterbury provides excellent resources to support your studies. The Jarman Building houses individual edit suites, a digital studio and the Studio 3 Gallery, which hosts home and visiting exhibitions and allows you to develop professional curatorial skills. Also on campus are a darkroom and the Templeman Library, which has extensive print and online resources.
