Abstract: 

This paper tries to present an approach for teaching Cultural Theory. Cultural Studies discipline theory has very significant place. All students of cultural studies have to pass the course of Cultural Theory. I have discussed how Cultural Theory is the core of cultural studies and it is needed to convince students to pay serious attention to the course of Cultural Theory. This paper argues that teaching cultural theory is not merely dealing with theories, in fact we practice all the political and social dimensions of cultural studies. In addition, here I used my lived experiences for demonstrating some educational and political barriers to teach Cultural Theory in Iran. This approach for teaching cultural theory is rooted in cultural studies cognitive, political and educational objectives. I showed that learning theory is a kind of ethical and emotional practice and it is also theoretical and cognitive exercise. This is the first Persian text to discuss how to teach cultural theory in cultural studies.
