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
