Question of Method in Cultural Studies brings together a group of scholars from across the social sciences and humanities to consider one of the most vexing issues confronting the proverbial 'anti-discipline' of cultural studies.
  • Covers such topics as the media, feminism, and politics
  • Identifies what methods have prevailed in the interdisciplinary pursuit of cultural studies
  • Examines the relationship between cultural studies and traditional disciplines, the politics of knowledge, and spatial and temporal models
  • Probes the possibility of method in explicit terms for scholars and students in media, communications, sociology and allied fields.
