Doing Cultural Theory is a textbook and a toolkit that teaches the basics of cultural theory, unpacks its complexities with real-life examples, and shows readers how to link theory and practice.
- Offers accessible introductions to how cultural studies has engaged with key theories in structuralism, poststructuralism and postmodernism
- Teaches straightforward ways of practicing these theories so students learn to think for themselves
- Uses 'Practice' boxes to show students how to apply cultural theory in the real world
- Guides students through the literature with carefully selected further reading recommendations
Other textbooks only show how others have analyzed and interpreted the world. Doing Cultural Theory takes it a step further and teaches students step-by-step how to do cultural theory for themselves.
