This comprehensive anthology brings together classic and contemporary essays in the diverse field of Cultural Studies. It is designed for classroom use in a variety of settings and departments, from Communications and Film Studies to Literature and Anthropology. With an international scope and interdisciplinary approach, this book represents the diversity, depth, and leading scholarship of this complex field.

This important new anthology:

  • Provides an overview of the history of the discipline, and argues for better placement of Cultural Studies within the academy
  • Offers a range of important perspectives on key topics, including policy, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, identity, visual culture, and diaspora
