Why Cultural Studies? is a rallying call for a reinvigoration of the project of cultural studies that provides a critical analysis of its meteoric rise to the academic fore and makes a convincing argument for the pressing need for a renewed investment in, and re-evaluation of, its core ideals.
"Why Cultural Studies? pushes us to reclaim the project of cultural studies as, before all else, a political one, committed to changing the world. It is an important intellectual call to arms.?
Lawrence Grossberg, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill
?This rousing polemic aims to shake up the familiar stories of cultural studies and suggest new ways of raising questions with which to approach its place in present and future conjunctures. It is engagingly written and will re-invigorate debates both inside and outside the academy.?
Ann Gray, University of Lincoln
