Reviews

Just when even the stodgiest of academics was getting used to the idea of cultural studies as a traditional academic discipline, here comes a book to shake everything up again -- Mikita Brottman Popmatters New Cultural Studies is a rousing call to reinvigorate cultural studies. Presenting and interrogating a range of new theoretical discourses, the book provides a generous and informative look at a new generation of theorists whose work is crucial to understanding the agency of politics within cultural studies. New Cultural Studies is a must read for anyone concerned not just about the future of cultural studies but also about theory's presence in constructing such a future. -- Henry Giroux, McMaster University This is a wonderful book about emergent possibilities within cultural studies. The contributors valuably deconstruct and rearticulate the too-often taken for granted theoretical discourses of cultural studies. Rather than a declaration of generational independence as the title might suggest, it is an important reminder of the need for cultural studies to go on theorizing, in ever-changing contexts of political demands. -- Lawrence Grossberg, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Hall and Birchall, along with the writers they have included in this volume, breathe fresh intellectual life in the field of Cultural Studies by looking to strands in contemporary philosophy and showing how an animated conversation between Cultural Studies and Philosophy especially in relation to world events, ethics, war, multi-culturalism, technology and the body, is long overdue. The chapters in this collection are erudite and lucid, they are also lively and engaged, and they are highly effective insofar as they bring Cultural Studies into a new era. -- Angela McRobbie, Goldsmiths College London An invaluable resource for both lecturers and students in enhancing the teaching and learning experience. This title offers a diverse selection of really well-written and informative interventions (theoretical and methodological) that will undoubtedly be influential in helping to establish both what cultural studies is, and what it might become, as we move further into the 21st Century. -- Liam French Art, Design, Media Subject Centre Newsletter Just when even the stodgiest of academics was getting used to the idea of cultural studies as a traditional academic discipline, here comes a book to shake everything up again New Cultural Studies is a rousing call to reinvigorate cultural studies.
