Ethical questions feature prominently on today's cultural and
political agendas. The Ethics of Cultural Studies presents an ethical
manifesto for Cultural Studies, an exploration of its current ethical
and political concerns, and of its future challenges.
The book is concerned with ethics in the material world, and draws
on examples as diverse as cloning and genetics, asylum and
immigration, experiments in plastic surgery and in electronic and
digital art, memories of the Holocaust, September 11th, and media
representations of violence and crime.
The Ethics of Cultural Studies is a groundbreaking intervention that
sets the debate on ethics in cultural study, and offers an invaluable
source of ideas for students of contemporary culture.
