Description - Cultural Studies by Pepi Leistyna

"Cultural Studies: From Theory to Action" is a landmark collection of key works that inspires, provokes, and revitalizes conversations about issues of social and economic justice and the current crisis in democracy. The book brings together work done in key areas of concern to cultural studies, including globalization, class analysis, media and representational politics, racism, sexism, and heterosexism; juxtaposes major theoretical pieces with 'micro-literatures' by activists, artists, and teachers who are striving hard to put theory into practices; highlights consciousness-raising, coalition building, resistance, activism and structural change to chart the ways a critical public can effectively wage war against oppression; and, includes generous lists of suggested readings, lists of activist organizations, web resources, and a list of journals that 'go against the grain'.
