Abstract

The article considers the trending concept of edutainment (a portmanteau of ‘education’ and ‘entertainment’), and studies the socio-cultural factors that have helped to spread such educational methods. The author demonstrates the concept’s relevance to teaching cultural studies at non-humanities universities; exemplifies it through her own experience of applying edutainment to coaching students’ research of the cultural heritage; describes the methodology of the educational experiment; and assesses its theoretical and practical results.
