Synopsis

Where is cultural studies today? Does it have anything left to say? Where is theory and where is politics? Certainly, cultural studies seems to have lost its way somewhere between today's preoccupation with the empirical and the theory revolutions of the 1980s and 90s. Assessing the work of key theorists across the history of cultural studies - Raymond Williams, Stuart Hall, Meaghan Morris and Angela McRobbie - this book argues that the trend towards a more politicized practice is in fact not political enough; theory, and deconstruction in particular, can offer a more radical and a more political engagement. Pinpointing the ambiguities that both constitute and disturb cultural studies and outlining a radical agenda for its future, this book is designed for all those interested in cultural practice and theory.
