Study where cultures collide and intersect.
This track focuses on the practical and theoretical issues arising from cross-cultural encounters around the world. It studies these both by examining conventional cultural products (literature, film, visual art, and music), and also by investigating their broader political and social contexts. This concentration addresses compelling issues of cultural interchange for students interested in cultures for their own sake, as well as in careers in NGOs and international business and law. It is committed to interdisciplinary approaches to contemporary problems, and students may take courses in the language-and-literature disciplines, as well as in anthropology, art history, film, history, music, and philosophy.
