Cultural Studies 1983 : A Theoretical History Paperback / softback

Edited by Jennifer Daryl Slack, Lawrence Grossberg

Part of the Stuart Hall: Selected Writings series

Paperback / softback


The publication of Cultural Studies 1983 is a touchstone event in the history of Cultural Studies and a testament to Stuart Hall's unparalleled contributions.

The eight foundational lectures Hall delivered at the University of Illinois in 1983 introduced North American audiences to a thinker and discipline that would shift the course of critical scholarship.

Unavailable until now, these lectures present Hall's original engagements with the theoretical positions that contributed to the formation of Cultural Studies.

Throughout this personally guided tour of Cultural Studies' intellectual genealogy, Hall discusses the work of Richard Hoggart, Raymond Williams, and E.

P. Thompson; the influence of structuralism; the limitations and possibilities of Marxist theory; and the importance of Althusser and Gramsci.

Throughout these theoretical reflections, Hall insists that Cultural Studies aims to provide the means for political change.
