Cultural studies has emerged as a major force in the analysis of cultural systems and their relation to social power. "Rather than being interested in television or architecture or pinball machines themselves - as industrial or aesthetic structures - cultural studies tends to be interested in the way such apparatuses work as points of concentration of social meaning, as 'media' (literally)," according to John Frow and Meaghan Morris.
Here, two of Australia's leading cultural critics bring together work that represents a distinctive national tradition, moving between high theory and detailed readings of localized cultural practices. Ethnographic audience research, cultural policy studies, popular consumption, "bad" aboriginal art, landscape in feature films, style, form and history in TV miniseries, and the intersections of tourism with history and memory - these are among the topics addressed in a landmark volume that cuts across myriad traditional disciplines.

"The best collection on cultural studies that I have yet to see. Anyone with an interest in cultural studies, feminism, postcolonialism, or critical theory will want to read this book... The contributors demonstrate how Australian work is both similar to and different from other bodies of national cultural studies work." -- Larry Grossberg, coeditor of Cultural Studies

The harvest of a long and deep acquaintance with Joyce s fifteen enigmatic stories of Dublin life, Narrative Con/Texts in Dubliners creatively widens the definition of context to include networks of theme and symbol. By treating Dubliners as an expanding document of lives in the process of being lived and by paying attention to how the boundaries between stories break down, Benstock is able to notice how characters and situations come uncannily to resemble each other. There are several innovative approaches here (for example, the thorough inspection of the economic conditions of Joyce s Dublin, down to the halfpenny) as well as new twists on established ideas. Benstock attempts a global, integrated reading of the stories, substituting his more holistic con/texts for the current fashion of context-hunting. His is an old ambition (for full coverage) in a new, upbeat format. Seller Inventory # BTE9780252063534
