Considers the complex relations proposed in contemporary philosophy between art, media and culture. The unit looks at elements of aesthetic theory in the light of contemporary cultural studies and art history and examines the impact that various media of expression -- from art forms to popular cultural formations -- have had on our thinking of what is meaningful and significant as theory.
