About

Cultural Studies at the University of California, Davis, offers an interdisciplinary approach to the study of culture and society that highlights how sexuality, race, ability, citizenship, gender, nationality, class, and language organize embodied identities, social relations, and cultural objects.

Overview

Program Overview

Drawing on faculty from a wide range of disciplines and intellectual interests, the Cultural Studies program offered by the University of California, Davis, cuts across the humanities, social sciences, the law school, and agricultural and environmental studies. With the close guidance and supervision of a faculty committee, students in the program pursue interdisciplinary research in areas such as studies of comparative and critical race, ecocriticism, disability studies, fashion, queer theory, traditional and digital media, popular culture, science and technology, Marxist theory, travel and tourism, food, physical and cognitive abilities, cultural geography, transnational culture and politics, globalization, religion, rhetoric, performance, human rights, social justice, borders and migration, militarization and security, arts and activism, and critical theory. The program emphasizes the linked analyses of these factors in relation to local community formations, transnationalism, post-colonialism, neo-colonialism, and globalization.
