Synopsis: What is, or are, Cultural Studies?
In this outstanding critical and historical account, Fred Inglis,strips away the philosophical incoherence of Cultural Studies toreveal a common focus within the protean subject-matter and complexhistory of the field.
Inglis begins with a concise, ambitious review of the historicalcircumstances which made Cultural Studies both necessary andpossible in the inter-war years. He then charts the development ofthe field from its often contradictory origins (in Cambridge,England, and Frankfurt, Germany through its encounter with Marxism.French structuralism and linguistic philosophy, to contemporaryanthropology.
Focusing on the study of the value as the defining content ofCultural Studies, Inglis illuminates the work of such key figuresas F. R. Leavis, Raymond Williams, Stuart Hall, Theodore Adorno,Antonio Gramsci and Clifford Geertz. Balancing the claims of theGrand Theory against the charms of local knowledge, Inglis charts afascinating course through the theories and methods of CulturalStudies as it seeks to refashion the traditional academicdisciplines of the Humanities and Social Sciences.
Ending with a chapter on "How to do Cultural Studies", this bookprovides a much needed critical introduction to an exciting newfield of inquiry. Sympathetic but non-partisan in approach, andrefreshingly clear in its framework, Cultural Studies should bewelcomed by students and teachers alike.
About the Author: Fred Inglis is Professor of Cultural Studies at the University of Warwick, UK. He has also been a member of the Institute for Advanced Study at Princeton University, USA. His previous books include Media Theory (Blackwell, 1990) and The Cruel Peace?
