Reflexões sobre Cultura: Aspectos Conceituais; Chaves Analíticas e Procedimentos Metodológicos.

Programa de Pós-Graduação Stricto Sensu em Comunicação


The content will be organized considering the three major axes announced in the discipline title. The first axis seeks to problematize culture in a conceptual approach, going through its different understandings throughout the XX-XXI centuries. It also implies conceiving it, in the contemporary context, as multifaceted, both in its dynamics and as an object of study, and for this reason we have listed, in the second axis, some analytical keys for reflection on the cultural sphere - discourse, representation and memory and mediations. The third axis addresses methodological aspects of cultural analysis, considering the indicated keys.
