Doing cultural theory as means of understanding the practice of cultural studies

What is it about?

Doing Cultural Theory is a textbook and a toolkit that teaches the basics of cultural theory (within the area of cultural studies), unpacks its complexities with real-life examples, and shows readers how to link theory and practice. Other textbooks only show how others have analyzed and interpreted the world. This book takes it a step further and teaches students step-by-step how to do cultural theory for themselves.

Why is it important?

It is a combination of theory and practice and includes original research. The final chapters offer an innovative approach to spacial theory as a means of mapping late capitalism.
