Questions of cultural identity by Stuart Hall( )

63 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in 4 languages and held by 2,002 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Questions of Cultural Identity offers a wide-ranging exploration of these issues. Stuart Hall outlines the reasons why the question of identity is so compelling, and yet so problematic. Individual contributors interrogate different dimensions of the crisis of identity, providing both theoretical and substantive insights into its contemporary manifestations. Rather than privileging any one approach to the problem of identity, the book opens up a number of significant questions and offers insights into different approaches to understanding identity. In doing so it both illuminates and advances debates about identity and its futures. This book will be essential reading for students and researchers in cultural studies and sociology, and across a wide range of the humanities and social sciences
Resistance through rituals : youth subcultures in post-war Britain by Tony Jefferson( Book )

99 editions published between 1975 and 2017 in 4 languages and held by 1,082 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The work of the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies at Birmingham has been noted as historically leading the field in new areas of enquiry within the field of cultural studies, and the papers from the Centre are canonical reading for many cultural studies students. This revised edition includes all the original, exceptional papers, and enhances these with the reflections of the editors thirty years after the original publication. At a time when youth culture had been widely publicised, but few people understood its significance as one of the most striking and visible manifestations of social and political change, these papers redressed the balance. Looking in detail at the wide range of post-war youth subcultures, from teds, mods and skinheads to black Rastafarians, Resistance through Rituals considers how youth culture reflects and reacts to cultural change. -- Publisher description
Representation : cultural representations and signifying practices by Stuart Hall( Book )

55 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 1,082 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This broad-ranging text offers a comprehensive treatment of how visual images, language and discourse work as 'systems of representation'." "Individual chapters explain a variety of approaches to representation, bringing to bear concepts from semiotic, discursive, psychoanalytic, anthropological, sociological, feminist, art-historical and Foucauldian models of representation. They explore representation as a signifying practice in a rich diversity of social contexts and institutional sites: the use of photography in the construction of national identity and culture; the poetics and politics of exhibiting other cultures in ethnographic museums; fantasies of 'the racialized Other' in popular media, film and image; the construction of masculine identities in discourses of consumer culture and advertising; the gendering of narratives in television soap operas." "The book discusses contested and critical questions of meaning, truth, knowledge and power in representation, and the relations between representation, pleasure and fantasy. Combining illustrative examples with activities and selected readings, accessible but not simplified, it offers a unique resource for teachers and students in cultural studies and related fields as an introduction to this complex and central theme."--Jacket
Culture, media, language : working papers in cultural studies, 1972-79 by Stuart Hall( Book )

83 editions published between 1980 and 2015 in English and Undetermined and held by 835 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies has played a pioneering role in the development of cultural studies. This book, by bringing together old and new work from the Centre, charts both the Centre's relation to the wider intellectual debates within cultural studies as well as the theoretical changes in its approach to its own work during the past decade. The articles in this collection are drawn from the first nine issues of the Centre's journal, Working Papers in Cultural Studies, from its list of stencilled papers and from recent unpublished work which extends the discussions initiated by the early papers. In a new article which introduces the book, Stuart Hall, director of the Centre from 1974 to 1979, traces the history and development of cultural studies generally, pointing out the major influences on the Centre's work and giving his personal assessment of the Centre's contribution to the field. A second introductory piece--Richard Johnson's 1976 review article on the debate about the 'peculiarities' of English social development--marks the Centre's shift in emphasis towards more historical work. The rest of the book is divided into sections on ethnography, media studies, language and English studies. Each presents an overview of the changing interests and directions in these areas, which are then illustrated by a selection of early and recent articles. The result is a guide to some of the landmarks in cultural studies and to the current state of the subject
Representation & the media by Stuart Hall( Visual )

16 editions published between 1997 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 834 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stuart Hall, a renowned public speaker and teacher, lectures on the central ideas of cultural studies -- that reality is not experienced directly, but through the lens of culture, through the way that human beings represent and tell stories about the world in which they live. Using visual examples, Hall shows how the media -- and especially the visual media -- have become the key players in the process of modern story telling

Race : the floating signifier by Stuart Hall( Visual )

41 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 824 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Stuart Hall, a renowned public speaker and teacher, presents a lecture on race and the meaning of racial signifiers (e.g., skin color) at Goldsmiths' College, New Cross, London. Weaving a compelling argument that includes a critical engagement with the work of Anthony Appiah and W.E.B. Du Bois, Hall concludes that because the meaning of race is never fixed but is dependent upon cultural context, it can be described as a "floating signifier." Begins with an interview of Hall by Sut Jhally
The popular arts by Stuart Hall( Book )

43 editions published between 1964 and 2018 in English and held by 740 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

When it first appeared in 1964, Stuart Hall and Paddy Whannel's The Popular Arts opened up an almost unprecedented field of analysis and inquiry into contemporary popular culture. Counter to the prevailing views of the time, Hall and Whannel recognized popular culture's social importance and considered it worthy of serious study. In their analysis of everything from Westerns and the novels of Mickey Spillane, Ian Fleming, and Raymond Chandler to jazz, advertising, and the television industry, they were guided by the belief that studying popular culture demanded an ethical evaluation of the text and full attention to its properties. In so doing, they raised questions about the relation of culture to society and the politics of taste and judgment in ways that continue to shape cultural studies. Long out of print, this landmark text highlights the development of Hall's theoretical and methodological approach while adding a greater understanding of his work. This edition also includes a new introduction by Richard Dyer, who contextualizes The Popular Arts within the history of cultural studies and outlines its impact and enduring legacy

A Son of Africa( Visual )

9 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 549 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A docudrama based on the book, The interesting narrative of the life of Oloudah Equiano, or Gustavus Vaasa the African, which was the first influential slave autobiography. When it was published in 1789, it fueled a growing anti-slavery movement in the U.S. and England. This production employs dramatic reconstruction, archival material and interviews with scholars. Equiano's narrative begins in the West African village where he was kidnapped into slavery in 1756. He was shipped to a Virginia plantation and then later sold again to a British naval officer. Here he learned to read and write, became a skilled trader, eventually bought his freedom and married into English society where he became a leading abolitionist
The fateful triangle : race, ethnicity, nation by Stuart Hall( Book )

12 editions published between 2012 and 2017 in English and Italian and held by 423 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Identities are not something we are born with, Hall argues, but are formed and transformed in the discourses of nation, ethnicity, and race. Casting his glance over the modern age, he shows how the imperial view of civilized-versus-barbarian gave way to a politics of identification that grew ever more unpredictable under late 20th century conditions of globalization. Race was long ago discredited by science yet it persists because it operates as a signifier, making meanings out of the binary representation of difference. From Renaissance to Enlightenment, stability prevailed in a West-centric order that fixed "their difference" against "our modernity," but the multi-accentual slide of signifiers also gave rise to new identities among subordinated subjects as well. Ethnicities that exclude others close down the multiple voicing built into every discourse, whereas Hall shows that "black" took on alternative meaning when Caribbean and South Asian migrants fought racism through alliances based not on genetic or cultural grounds but by opening the signifying chain to recodings. Migration is today at the heart of the contradictory tensions thrown up by global dislocations that have unsettled traditional bonds of collective belonging, although when nations make the rights of citizenship conditional on cultural homogeniety what Hall reveals is the extent to which liberal democracy's universalist values were grounded in an assimilationist worldview that has yet to be fully dismantled.--

Different : a historical context by Stuart Hall( Book )

16 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book represents a sample of the striking photographic images produced, in an explosion of creative work since the mid-1980s, by artists culturally or geographically marginalized from the centres of power and authority. Following an introduction which sets the work in a historical context, the book's main focus is the work of a selection of contemporary photographers who have used the image to explore and subvert the idea of 'black identity'. It charts their struggles to make the invisible visible, to open a 'third space' in cultural representation, and to 'write' their experiences, their bodies and their subjectivities back into the frame from which they were excluded - a new kind of photographic ' writing-of-the-self' or auto-graphy." "The book includes the work of African, African American, Black British, British Asian, Afro-Vietnamese, Aboriginal and other diaspora artists. The term 'black photography' is used in its broadest, most inclusive sense. Black is considered to be a political and cultural, not a genetic or biological, category. It is a contested idea, whose ultimate destination remains unsettled. And 'identity' is understood as always, in part, an invention; about 'becoming' as well as 'being'; and subject to the continuous play of history, culture and power. What makes it possible to compare the work of these photographers across their significant differences is their common historical experience of living in a racialized world. The many ways in which this fact inflects their practice is the 'difference' which generates the title: Different."--BOOK JACKET

The publication of Cultural Studies 1983 is a touchstone event in the history of Cultural Studies and a testament to Stuart Hall's unparalleled contributions.

Throughout this personally guided tour of Cultural Studies' intellectual genealogy, Hall discusses the work of Richard Hoggart, Raymond Williams, and E.P. Thompson; the influence of structuralism; the limitations and possibilities of Marxist theory; and the importance of Althusser and Gramsci. Throughout these theoretical reflections, Hall insists that Cultural Studies aims to provide the means for political change
