    This video discusses the Cultural Studies components of a 'Screen and Cultural Studies' Major at the University of Melbourne. The Screen and Cultural Studies major embraces material in the fields of film and popular media, screen histories, Australian, Hollywood and Art House cinemas, everyday life, television and entertainment, ethnographic and documentary cinema, computer games, the Internet and the representation of global cultures. The major also offers subjects about the nature and history of film and cultural studies. These include film and screen aesthetics, identity and gender, sexuality and spectatorship, the nature of narrative structures and class ideologies. Students encounter a variety of screen media, net-based cultures and popular cultures in order to consider their histories, their significance, and theories that help make sense of how they relate to power, commerce and lived culture today. Through innovative teaching, students in Screen and Cultural Studies encounter new ways of interpreting and analysing contemporary media and culture.
