The following guide was developed to support research that falls under the umbrella of Cultural Studies. This is an interdisciplinary subject area, typically focusing on areas that overlap with the humanities and social sciences. Work in cultural studies will often involve courses in internet culture, film and television, digital literacy, Web 2.0 activism, alter-globalization and human rights, and much more. Because of the wide-spanning nature of cultural studies, you may need to consult other research guides, some of which are linked in the Related Guides box the left of this box.
If you need help in the research process, contact your subject librarian.
