M.A. and Ph.D. in Cultural Studies at Queen`s University
Cultural Studies at Queens (CSQ) is a unique graduate program that integrates the range of theoretical and practical approaches used within Cultural Studies, and fosters scholarship in both historical and contemporary fields of research. Drawing on a range of practices, Cultural Studies researchers investigate values, beliefs and belongings, cultural processes and cultural objects, economic and social relations, institutions and identities.
Comprising 69 distinguished faculty from 21 disciplines, CSQ offers an innovative program at the M.A. and Ph.D. levels that includes opportunities for cultural production and community and activist fieldwork. Cultural Studies at Queen`s is committed to a diversity of students and faculty, to the global expertise that they bring to the cultural, social and academic fields, and to student involvement in the shaping of theprogram. We are home to the graduate journal Shift, as well as a student-organized open seminar series.
The program creates an intellectual environment that combines a high level of academic scholarship and an ongoing meaningful engagement with cultural and social issues relevant to local and global communities. To this end, we have options in both the M.A. and Ph.D. that allow students to become involved in various kinds of community organizations, to participate collaboratively with cultural producers or to develop their cultural practice (e.g. filmmaking, curation, performance) or to pursue community-based projects that have clear ties to the field areas of the program. The Ph.D. has been designed around four field areas: Communication, Media and Technologies; Globalization, Nationalisms and Cultural Citizenship; Social Movements; and Bodies and Identities.
Application deadline: February 15, 2010.
