What is Cultural Studies?

Cultural studies emphasizes cross-cultural understanding, inter-cultural communication and bridging cultural gaps through dialogue and critical self-reflection by studying peoples and systems. Some of the subjects that are typically covered as you seek to understand other cultures are the social, political, religious and economic practices of a culture or society.
