Description - Beyond the Cultural Turn by Victoria E. Bonnell

This volume examines the impact of the cultural turn on two prominent social science disciplines, history and sociology, and proposes new directions in the theory and practice of historical research. The editors provide an introduction analyzing the origins and implications of the cultural turn and its postmodernist critiques of knowledge. The text offers theoretical readings of the most persistent issues created by the cultural turn and empirical studies focusing on diverse social practices, the uses of narrativve, and the body and self as critical junctures where culture and society intersect.
