Case studies are meant to be creative and analytical – not just descriptive. They can report in multi-media forms, include embedded links, video clips, photos, news clippings, etc.
Cultural case studies enable students to think about the main contemporary socio-cultural issues and themes raised during the semester. Possible topics include: prevalent stereotypes, popular music, religious festivals, literary traditions, tourism campaigns, craftwork, indigenous cultures, sport, images from the mass media, public or historical figures, important specific events, or a particular ethnicised or racialised group.
Students will define specific topics within a general theme. A successful cultural case study demonstrates the ability to conduct independent, scholarly research.
