This unit examines ideas about the modern and modernity as they continue to impact on contemporary cultural analysis. Beginning with post-Enlightenment philosophy, we will consider a range of roughly twentieth-century ideas we have come to identify with 'modernity', 'modernism' and 'postmodernism'. The unit focuses on how these concepts are used in a wide range of academic disciplines and other cultural fields, including popular culture, media, practices of museums and galleries, literature, philosophy, and the social sciences.
2x seminar presentations, written + oral (30%) and 1x5000wd final research paper, developed from a presentation (70%)
