Culture, Power, and the Politics of Meaning

Lecture no. 20 from the course: Understanding Cultural and Human Geography

Culture, Power, and the Politics of Meaning

Taught by Professor Paul Robbins | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Science Course

Because culture is a system of shared meaning, cultural concepts—including history—are invented constructs. Meanings can change, which means some elements of culture are inseparable from politics. This lecture explores that connection by looking at the politics of women’s veils in Turkey and France.
