Cultural studies examines how a cultural artifact or event (for example, a film like Brokeback Mountain or Slumdog Millionaire, a natural catastrophe like Hurricane Katrina, or "the war on terror") relates to matters of social class, nationality, ethnicity, sexuality, gender, ideology, or identity.
