Inside Culture by Nick Couldry

Book Description

Inside Culture offers a fresh and stimulating reassessment of the direction of cultural studies. Nick Couldry argues without apology for cultural studies as a discipline centred around the interrelations of culture and power, with a clear focus on accountable empirical research that deals with the real complexities of contemporary lives - 'inside' culture. Chapters discuss the broad conceptual issues around 'cultures', 'texts', 'the self', and the individual. There are detailed discussions of a range of cultural studies authors which demystify the elaborate language of contemporary cultural studies, with suggestions for further thinking at the end of chapters.

Author Biography - Nick Couldry

Nick Couldry is Professor of Media, Communications and Social Theory in the Department of Media and communications at LSE. As a sociologist of media and culture, he approaches media and communications from the perspective of the symbolic power that has been historically concentrated in media institutions. He is interested in how media and communications institutions and infrastructures contribute to various types of order (social, political, cultural, economic, ethical). His work has drawn on, and contributed to, social, spatial, democratic and cultural theory, anthropology, and media and communications ethics. His analysis of media as 'practice' has been widely influential. He is the author or editor of 11 books and many journal articles and book chapters. Nick taught previously in the LSE Departments of Sociology and Media and Communications (2001-2006), and before rejoining LSE in September 2013 was joint Head of the Department of Media and Communications at Goldsmiths, University of London. He has been chair of the Philosophy Theory and Critique division of the ICA and vice-chair of the Mediatization Temporary Working Group of ECREA. He has held visiting positions at universities in University of Pennsylvania, University of Stockholm, RMIT Melbourne, Roskilde University, Sodertorn University, Stockholm, University of Technology Sydney, and University of Toulouse. In June 2014 Nick was appointed Adjunct Professor in the School of Media and Communication at RMIT, Melbourne, Australia. In 2014 Nick has given invited lectures and seminars in Brazil, Chile, Holland (Utrecht, Gronigen), Portugal, Sweden, and the USA (Boulder, Yale).
