Cultural Citizenship is a Cognitive Science class taught by James Miller.

Course Description

People in the West increasingly experience politics at a remove from daily life. They know politics mainly as representations and simulations, and less in terms of direct action like attending meetings, organizing and, even, voting. Politics has become for many just another realm of mediatized culture. As such, politics competes for attention with a multitude of other realms that promise pleasure. This is the essence of cultural citizenship, an element of the contemporary "aesthetization of politics." In this course we will explore this newly emerging theory and its implications for democracy. Students will write short responses to readings and a couple of essays, and will carry out a final project.
