Cultural studies can't be described simply as a new "discipline". It's a whole new critical approach, incorporating methods from a wide range of academic fields. Cultural studies provide us with new means for understanding racial, national, sexual and gender identities. Breaking from traditional academic approaches, it draws on everything from Moby Dick to Melrose Place to help us understand our culture.

This book traces the origins of cultural studies in Britain, and its dissemination in the United States, Canada, France, Australia, and South Asia. Introducing Cultural Studies covers the ground from Gramsoi to Raymond Williams, post-colonial discourse to the politics of the diaspora, feminism to queer theory, techno-culture, the media and globalization.

User Review  - Budi Kurniawan - Goodreads

A concise book introducing cultural studies. The information is concise and straightforward, although the use of the comics is rather distracting, but maybe it's also an additional touch that shows the blurry nature of this discipline. Read full review
