Abstract

Cultural Studies 1983: A Theoretical History offers a posthumous collection of lectures by influential cultural theorist Stuart Hall, given to students at the University of Illinois in 1983, covering such topics as the formation of Cultural Studies as a ‘political project’ and Hall’s theorisation of hegemony. Edited by Jennifer Daryl Slack and Lawrence Grossberg, Hall’s insights feel fresh, galvanising and both timeless and timely, writes Sofia Ropek Hewson, underscoring the importance of long-term political struggle as ‘the work we need to do’ – and positioning Cultural Studies at the heart of this.
