Cultural Studies Forums
The Cultural Studies Forum, a public roundtable held at the end of every semester, is designed to showcase the breadth and depth of knowledge, skills and expertise students develop throughout their studies in the Bachelor of Arts in Cultural Studies at Columbia College Chicago. In these oral presentations of their Capstone projects, students demonstrate not only their scholarly and rigorous engagement with cultural issues, texts, practices, and forms of all kinds, but also their political commitment to imagine a more humane world and "to author the culture of their times." The Forum is a great introduction to the ways in which Cultural Studies intervenes into what is truly important, linking theory and political practice, and to how it produces work that matters. The Forum is a great introduction to the ways our program seeks to make and does make a difference.
