Cultural Studies MA. I open the course outline for my first core module. I find: Foucault, Deleuze, Benjamin, Heidegger, Agamben, Badiou. White men, every one. Mostly dead.
Surely this is a mistake, I think.
I turn to the course outline for my second core module. I find: Kant, Marx, Husserl, Benjamin, Nietzsche, Freud.
