About this title

Synopsis:

Cultural Theory: An Anthology is a collection of the essential readings that have shaped and defined the field of contemporary cultural theory

  •  Features a historically diverse and methodologically concise collection of readings including rare essays such as   Pierre Bourdieu’s “Forms of Capital” (1986), Gilles Deleuze “Postscript on Societies of Control” (1992), and Fredric Jameson’s “Reification and Utopia in Mass Culture” (1979)
  • Offers a radical new approach to teaching and studying cultural theory with material arranged around the central areas of inquiry in contemporary cultural study —the status and significance of culture itself, power, ideology, temporality, space and scale, and subjectivity
  • Section introductions, designed to assist the student reader, provide an overview of each piece, explaining the context in which it was written and offering a brief intellectual biography of the author
  • A large annotated   bibliography of primary and secondary works for each author and topic promotes further research and discussion
  • Features a useful glossary of critical terms

From the Back Cover:

Cultural Theory: An Anthology presents a comprehensive collection of the essential readings that have shaped and defined the field of contemporary cultural theory. The editors have selected readings from key theorists and authors, including Judith Butler, Frantz Fanon, Michel Foucault and Fredric Jameson, whose ideas remain most relevant to the analysis and study of culture today. The concepts discussed cross several disciplines, with sections covering subjects such as power, ideology, the organization of space and time, and the production of subjectivity. The readings presented in this carefully chosen compilation reflect the most influential ideas that have emerged in each of these areas -- ideas that have been put to use in myriad ways in the study and critical assessment of modern culture.

Brief introductions to each thematically-linked section summarize the readings and their context, making the anthology accessible to the student reader as well as to faculty and researchers.
