    Cultural Studies, Postcolonial Studies and the intellectual as mediating figure

    There are two important intellectual figures who straddle two of the most powerful intellectual movements in the second half of the 20th century, Cultural Studies and Postcolonial Studies. The two fields share important questions concerning the relationship between nation, gender, class, culture and identity. And the two intellectual figures, Antonio Gramsci (1891-1937) and Stuart Hall, have both sought to elaborate, at either end of the century, a paradigm for dealing with the interrelations between these terms that remain notoriously slippery.

       In this paper I wish to look at how the two intellectual figures might productively be placed alongside each other, and how they can be contextualised in the contentious territory defined as central to both Cultural Studies and Postcolonial Studies.
