CCST 100 - Introduction to Critical and Creative Studies (LS)

This course provides an introduction to Critical and Creative Studies. It develops basic skills for critical and creative reasoning as students begin to explore contemporary critical knowledge and its limits. Critical thinking is the process used to reflect on and assess assumptions underlying the understanding of various issues or worldviews. Creative thinking is the process used to generate ideas/projects/practices that are imaginative and worthy of further elaboration. Students will develop these skills in lectures, seminars, and attendance at relevant events internal and external to ACAD. This course will explore selected complex issues that necessitate multi-faceted critical and creative approaches such as, but not limited to: Eco-cultures; Post-colonial Imaginaries; Social Justice; Art, Science and Technology; Post-Humanism; Nationalism and Globalism.
