A focus on “the mechanics of the social”—the interface of actions that articula... View more info

However, it is possible to obtain new and relevant information if we broaden our spectrum of sources to in... View more info

Lawrence Grossberg is one of the leading international figures in the study of the relations between political and popular cultures.

He argues for an understanding of cultural studies as conjunctural analysis, based on commitments to contextu... View more info
