The study field is framed by two main traditions in cultural studies – the Birmingham School and Frankfurt School. The field, however, is not designed in an exclusive manner. Related social sciences and humanities (sociology of literature, subcultural studies, discourse analysis, mythocriticism, and cognitive science) are also being consulted, to the extent that their inclusion is justified and necessary.
An interdisciplinary approach is justified and necessary both for the theoretical study of different forms of contemporary cultural expressions (elite and popular literature, genre and authorial films, youth and urban subcultures, everyday lifestyles, etc.) and for practical use in a given social environment. The latter is made possible through packages of knowledge drawn from cultural management and cultural policies studies, while the packages of knowledge from epistemology and sociology of knowledge give credibility to the power of judgement in terms of the contemporary 'scientification' of the world and globalisation of instrumental reason
