Abstract: As a relatively new discipline, Cultural Studies is highly inclusive of the types of texts used by researchers. These texts can include written and visual materials related to various cultures and social practices. In this seminar, Dr. Pan will share how she, as a Cultural Studies scholar, utilizes a range of historical and contemporary texts, along with relevant critical theories and concepts, to define her research objectives and methods. She will present two of her own research projects, namely the Asian Art Archives and her research related to Hainan Island, as case studies for sharing.
