This is the essential companion to Barker's (2000) highly regarded and popular introduction textbook on Cultural Studies, which has already gone to a new edition. The Dictionary is a major contribution which both defines the field and situates the student in the key concepts. The book includes over 250 entries on concepts and 50 on key theorists. It provides:
An unparalleled guide to the terrain of Cultural Studies
Authoritative, stimulating definitions
Accessible material for study use
Up-to-date entries on new concepts and innovative approaches
The book is an ideal teaching and research resource which can be used in conjunction with Barker's Cultural Studies (2000) and Making Sense of Cultural Studies (2002). It will be of interest to students of culture, media and communication. Its range and clarity will also find many readers in the Social Sciences and Humanities.
'A scholarly lexicon and stimulating 'rough guide' for Cultural Studies as it confronts and navigates the shifting sands of past, present and future' - Tim O'Sullivan Head of Media and Cultural Production, De Montfort University 'I'm certain undergraduate and postgraduate readers will consider the Dictionary to be a highly useful resource. Taken together, the definitions provide a effective overview of the field' - Stuart Allan Reader in Cultural Studies, University of the West of England, Bristol 'Any student wishing to acquaint her or himself with the field of cultural studies will find this an enormously useful book' - Joke Hermes Editor European Journal of Cultural Studies and Lecturer in Television Studies, University of Amsterdam 'This dictionary of cultural studies provides a handy and wonderfully comprehensive guide- it doesn t purport to tell the whole story, but it does offer to introduce readers and point out further paths. This short dictionary is a wonderful addition to the world of cultural studies. Students will find it a godsend; teachers, a springboardto an exciting intellectual milieu within communication studies; and libraries, a hard-to-keep-the shelves volume.' Paul A. Soukup
