"Culture in Bits addresses one of the key issues in the Humanities and Social Sciences today: the relation of cultural studies and poststructuralism. Approaching the topic with a broad and deep understanding of both cultural studies and poststructuralist writing, the book illuminates the relation of theory to empirical work, politics to scholarship and technology to the University. Highly recommended." Mark Poster, University of California at Irvine.Vom Verlag:
Where is cultural studies today? Does it have anything left to say? Where is theory and where is politics? Certainly, cultural studies seems to have lost its way somewhere between today's preoccupation with the empirical and the theory revolutions of the 1980s and 90s. Assessing the work of key theorists across the history of cultural studies - Raymond Williams, Stuart Hall, Meaghan Morris and Angela McRobbie - this book argues that the trend towards a more politicized practice is in fact not political enough; theory, and deconstruction in particular, can offer a more radical and a more political engagement. Pinpointing the ambiguities that both constitute and disturb cultural studies and outlining a radical agenda for its future, this book is designed for all those interested in cultural practice and theory.
