9781849205832: What′s Become of Cultural Studies?

It offers a level-headed account of where cultural studies has come from, the methodological and theoretical dilemmas that it faces today, and an agenda for its future development. In an age in which the relevance of cultural studies has been called into question, this book seeks to generate debate. Focusing upon the actual practice of cultural studies within higher education today, it asks whether or not cultural studies has really managed to maintain a connection with its original political and ethical mission and comments on the strategies needed to regain the initiative. Written by a world class figure in cultural studies, each chapter supports and guides the reader by introducing the key issues, reviewing the relevant commentary, and offering a critical conclusion of how each theme fits into a bigger picture.

About the Author:

Graeme Turner is Professor of Cultural Studies at the Centre for Critical and Cultural Studies, The University of Queensland, Australia

Review:

Graeme Turner is the leading chronicler of cultural studies. In this refreshing book, he addresses some tricky questions about the development and fate of the field, defending cultural studies as a discipline against not only its detractors but also erstwhile participants who have succumbed to the pressures of instrumentalism and drifted off into less critical territory. What′s Become of Cultural Studies? takes stock and establishes grounds for renewal
Jim McGuigan
