Ziauddin Sardar & Borin Van Loon

Introducing Graphic Guides  

Cultural studies is a discipline that claims not to be a discipline – a radical critical approach to understanding racial, national, social and gender identities.

Introducing Cultural Studies provides an incisive tour through the minefield of this complex subject, charting its origins in Britain and its migration to the USA, Canada, France, Australia and South Asia, examining the ideas of its leading exponents and providing a flavour of its use around the world. Covering ground from Gramsci to Raymond Williams, from postcolonial discourse to the politics of diaspora, from feminism to queer theory and from digital culture and the media to globalization, it serves as an insightful guide to the essential concepts of this fascinating area of study.
