Internationalizing Cultural Studies is an unprecedented resource that introduces and pluralizes cultural studies work from diverse locales and intellectual traditions. The anthology collects important writings from different regions of the world, with particular attention to transnationally transportable and contextually specific works in the field. The book clarifies how the active and proliferating practices of cultural studies in various regions of the world are taken up, circulated, used, valued, and taught. It is also a challenge to practitioners - in the West and beyond - to begin to discuss and use a broader canvas of work with a view to re-defining cultural studies as a truly global intellectual movement. Organized around key themes that frame disciplinary discussion - Race, Ethnicity, and Nation; Globalization/Transnationalism; Gender and Sexual Cultures; Media Production and Consumption; Cities and the Urban Imaginary; Popular Practices; Techno-cultures; Performing Cultures; and Visual Cultures - the anthology features ample introductory material by an expert group of editors, enabling teachers to customize their teaching according to regions of the world, key thinkers, and theoretical trends. By de-centering the field, Internationalizing Cultural Studies gives shape, for the first time in one volume, to a poly-vocal discipline from within and without.From the Back Cover:
Internationalizing Cultural Studies is an unprecedented resource that introduces and consolidates existing key and important writings in cultural studies literature from different regions of the world. The editors have designed the readings to challenge practitioners in the West and beyond to redefine cultural studies as a truly global movement.

Book Description Wiley-Blackwell, 2004. Book Condition: New. Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: "This book is an important step forward for cultural studies. It is a significant effort to re-present cultural studies as a truly international endeavor. With its coverage of cultural studies' enormous geographical diversity, and the range of its speaking positions, it will hopefully reshape the ways we think about and teach cultural studies." Lawrence Grossberg, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill "A-List authors and impressive analysis. This major collection captures the international scope and ambition of cultural studies and alerts us to vital new directions in the field. A must-have book." -- John Hartley, Queensland University of Technology "Internationalizing Cultural Studies is a big, rich, innovative book: conceptually capacious, methodologically diverse, multiple in sites, sophisticated in linkages, well-organized for use, it just calls out for pedagogical application at those global/local pressure points where critical theory gets tested and transformed. This is a powerful work de-centering the global, agitating the local. Drawing on a far-flung trans-disciplinary team, Abbas and Erni have collated exemplary work, highlighted emergent tactics, sites, and paradigm shifts in a beautiful collection that will help frame debates, topics, methods and new trajectories of field-formation in the coming years and across various institutional and disciplinary frameworks." -- Rob Wilson, University of California at Santa Cruz.
