KS400i Cultural Politics on the Internet
Fall 2015, T 11:30-2:20pm
This course examines the transformation of cultural politics in the internet age. It will look specifically at activism, politics and anti-politics in relation to internet technology and culture. We will be seeking to engage with contemporary strategies in the context of both what is political about culture and cultural about politics.

Switching into Cultural Studies/Declaring Cultural Studies as a (Combined) Major:

Progression in Cultural Studies (Combined Major) is subject to the same expectations as progression in any Honours program at WLU. You can see these expectations here. You may want to pay special attention to the section that reads; "Progression requirements for the honours BA program are based on grade point averages (GPA) obtained from all courses taken and will be calculated on a cumulative basis. For progression, the requirement will be a minimum GPA of 5.00 (C) in each of the honours subject(s) of specialization and a minimum overall GPA of 5.00. For graduation, a minimum cumulative GPA of 7.00 (B-) in each area of specialization and a minimum overall GPA of 5.00 is required."

If you meet the requirements for an Honours program you can declare Cultural Studies as a major by filling out a Program Selection Form available online at: The Registrar's Office will check to ensure you currently meet progression requirements for the program you have selected.
