A Concise Glossary of Cultural Theory
This glossary of key terms is a guide to the changing meanings and issues in cultural studies and the broader study of culture. Written with the student reader in mind, the entries present cultural theory as an active and continuing set of debates which challenge received attitudes and redefine current thinking. Cultural theory ranges across a number of academic disciplines and subject areas. There is hence no prescribed route through the glossary but a network of possibilities guiding students across a wide terrain of on-going theory and discussion." "Fields covered: Feminism, Marxism, Psychoanalysis, Structuralism, Poststructuralism, Discourse, Postmodernism, Postcolonialism, Literary Criticism and Aesthetic Theory, Film, Media and Popular Culture, Sociology of Culture, Information Theory.
