about this item

A Companion To Critical and Cultural Theory

A Companion to Critical and Cultural Theory examines the contemporary transformation of this broad field, with special emphasis on the way debates have changed in recent decades. Featuring original contributions from an international team of cultural theorists, the volume offers fresh and compelling perspectives and sketches out exciting new areas of theoretical inquiry. The coverage is thoughtfully organized into two sections: lineages and problematics. The first section explains key schools and movements clearly and succinctly, situating them in relation to broader developments in culture, society, and politics. The second section tackles issues that have shaped and energized the field since the Second World War, including coverage of both familiar and under-theorized topics related to living and laboring, being and knowing, and agency and belonging. Providing an insightful, up-to-date framework in which to discuss crucial theoretical questions, traditions, approaches, and concepts, this is an essential resource for both students and advanced scholars working in this evolving field
