 WhatIsCulture?   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
The term culture, in what is known as the "anthropological definition," refers to a "whole way of life," meaning a broad range of activities within a society.
In this book [in our class], we are defining culture as the shared practices of a group, community, or society, through which meaning is made out of the visual, aural, and textual world of representations.
Here we are indebted to the work of British cultural theorist Stuart Hall, who states that culture is not so much a set of things (television shows or paintings, for example) as a set of processes or practices through which individuals and groups come to make sense of those things.

 Stuart Hall, "Cultural Studies and its Theoretical Legacies"
Although it doesn't call itself "cultural studies," many of the people who are contributing to it are people who have been formed within cultural studies in Britain, which by now is a house of many mansions, but a lot of people who are in it don't know one end of cultural studies from another.
The interrelations between feminism, psychoanalysis, and cultural studies defines a completely and permanently unsettled terrain for me. The gains of understanding cultural questions in and through the insights of psychoanalytic work, especially as those have been reread through the political practices of feminism, opened up enormous insights for me-that's what I mean by gain.
Culture is neither just the processes of the unconscious writ large nor is the unconscious simply the internalization of cultural processes through the subjective domain.

 mass media effects: Marxism in the UK

Stuart Hall replaced Richard Hoggart as the director of the CCCS in 1969.
Early on, Hall rejected the contrast between the supposed organic culture of the past and today's mass culture and turned his attention to a serious evaluation of mass culture on the same terms as high culture.

 STEFAN COLLINI - CULTURE TALK   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
Culture and politics will, he asserts, always be ‘discrepant’, and this discrepancy should be seen not just as a negative or awkward case of non-correspondence, ‘but as a space of possibility’.
But if ‘cultural politics’ is not just everyday politics by another name, if it somehow involves the field of ‘culture’ (as the whole conception of the book suggests it does), then it becomes important to see what the relation is between this distinctive sense of ‘cultural politics’ and what he characterizes as ‘metacultural discourse’;.
In other words, ‘cultural politics’, as Mulhern (sketchily) characterizes it, is bound to share the formal properties he identifies in appeals to ‘culture’ itself, but I would argue that this is in itself no bad thing.

As an integral part of the capitalist economy, the culture industry provides popular cultural diversions that the masses seek “as an escape from the mechanized work process, and to recruit strength in order to be able to cope with it again” (Adorno and Horkheimer 1973, 137).
Popular culture is a landscape in which people occupy vastly different and often multiple subject positions, subjectivities grounded in race, ethnicity, social class, occupation, region, gender, sexual orientation, and so on.
As the cultural theorist Stuart Hall has established, popular culture is a site of struggle in which various alternative cultural projects contend against the hegemony of the dominant culture.

 postmodernism: details
If what cultural studies is about is the rational critique of existing institutions, which is of course central to the Enlightenment project, then cultural studies either collapses or has to go off and be about something else, since there is no rational foundation left for the critique.
This may be seen as a democratization of the cultural studies field, opening it up to a plurality of voices, and may therefore also be seen as the realization of the radical project of cultural studies.
Just as the insights of French philosophy and linguistics had an enormous influence on the development of cultural studies in the Marxian vein, so too have the French been influential in the further development of cultural studies beyond that Marxian school of thought, in the area of what is known as postmodernism.

He also anticipated contemporary thinking in his view of culture as a performative field, and in his focus on the body, which is at the center of his ideas of political agency and cultural practice.

Stuart Hall has defined Cultural Studies as "applied theory," suggesting that it involves the intervention of a variety of forms of critical theory — including Marxism, post-structuralism, psychoanalysis, feminism, post-colonial theory — in the public or social or political realms.
Attention will be paid to the ways in which cultural studies has evolved from, and also returns to, the "close reading, with a difference" (as the Dutch cultural theorist Mieke Bal has put it) of texts.
And we will focus on a recently re-issued "classic" of British Cultural Studies, Raymond Williams's The Long Revolution, both as a model for the practice of cultural studies at the intersections of the literary and the theoretical and as a case study in the continued relevance of this kind of critical work.

 Dissertation Proposal
Hall’s notion of cultural identity formation through transformation works well with explaining new Asian American identities, for it emphasizes the role migration and historical contexts play in transforming identities.
Their cultural nationalism is also in complicity with American nationalism which often demands immigrants to give up all their ethnic connections and devote their loyalty to the nation state that is built on mainstream, exclusive, and white cultural norms.
’s theory of mixed identities, Hall’s theory of identity change over time, and Anzaldua’s theory of crossing boundaries can be used to explain the characters, particularly the daughters who overcome cultural and generational differences to reach understanding and compromise with their mothers.

In the so-called postmodern culture of late consumer capitalism, a significant number of white affluent suburban and urban middle-aged baby-boomers complain of feeling uprooted from cultural traditions, community belonging, and spiritual meaning.
For the last two decades, cultural theorist Stuart Hall has insisted that the “crisis of the Left” is due neither to internal divisions in the activist or academic Left nor to the clever rhetoric or funding schemes of the Right.
When, in 1994, I was asked to address the subject of cultural studies and the public sphere, I assumed that I was being asked to do so partly because my work has addressed the relations between academic and popular knowledges: the university in the public sphere, the university as a public sphere.

For example, Ganapati/A Spirit in the Bush, a tape that situates the killing of elephants within a cultural death drive to destroy the earth, is composed of continuously scrolling script that dislodges the slowed down images of elephants from their animality, linking them into a larger psychic symbolic structure about death, destruction and land.
Invoking cultural feminist Susan Griffin, Reeves contends that these images are all interconnected-war, a public manifestation of unbridled male power, and family abuse, an example of war invading familial psychic terrains.
