Beyond Britain

Stuart Hall and the Postcolonializing of Anglophone Cultural Studies

Research output: Book/ReportBookResearchpeer-review

Abstract

Postwar Britain witnessed the concurrent evolution of two new intellectual movements which have since become institutionalized as two major academic fields of enquiry: cultural studies and postcolonial studies. Although both fields are enormously diverse, they have developed a parallel focus around the place of individuals in terms of race, ethnicity, class and gender. Using the work of Stuart Hall, a figure uniquely positioned in both fields, 'Beyond Britain' offers a rich cultural-historical study of the evolution of both movements.
