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. This dynamic volume: Brings together work undertaken in globalization, class analysis, media and representational politics, racism, sexism, and heterosexism Uniquely 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 Reinstates the political dimension into the cultural studies project, demonstrating how theory can be translated into social, political, and cultural action. In addition to a substantial essay that frames the project, this valuable resource includes generous lists of suggested readings, activist organizations, web resources, and journals that "go against the grain." These are all designed to continue the conversation that the anthology begins, and to enable readers to get involved in their own communities and coalitions.
