It is designed for independent study combined with tutorial sessions. Chapter 1 is an introduction to the course and its study objectives. Chapter 2 defines the term "culture" in terms of contemporary usage. Chapter 3 traces the development of the idea of culture and Chapter 4 uses the pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood as an example of a cultural organization. Chapter 5, "Cultural Changes, 1870-1914" deals with the impact of cultural change. Chapter 6 focuses on cultural production, Chapter 7 presents a model of cultural production, and Chapter 8 considers the debate about mass culture. Chapters 9 and 10 are "The Frankfurt School and the Culture Industry" and "The Concept of Ideology." Tutorial sessions deal with cultural formations, cultural production, and ideology.
