About this item

Cultural studies face a complicated yet rich future, proving both flexible and resilient in many countries. Against this backdrop, this book offers a fresh perspective on the state of the field of cultural studies, via an evaluation of the work of one of its key thinkers – Graeme Turner – and the traditions of Australian cultural studies which have been influential on the formation of the field.

Thinking with Turner, and being informed by his practice, can help orient us in the face of new challenges and contexts across culture, media, and everyday life; teaching and pedagogy; the relation of research to the new politics of public engagement, policy, management, and universities; the internationalization of cultural studies and the reconfiguration of nationalism; the changing concepts and relations of culture; the development of important new areas in cultural studies, such as celebrity studies; and the emergence of digital media studies.

This lively and provocative volume is essential reading for anyone interested in where cultural studies has come from, where it’s heading to, and what kinds of ideas – not least from Graeme Turner – will help scholars and students alike make sense of and reconfigure the discipline. This book was originally published as a special issue of Cultural Studies.
