Product Description


'Ben Highmore has written the book that students and teachers of cultural studies have long been waiting for. The text intervenes convincingly into some entrenched and ongoing debates and disputes, and in doing so offers a lot more than a mere introduction. It offers a way to make sense of culture that is at once compelling, eminently reliable, persuasive and authoritative. A Passion for Cultural Studies is an exceptional text.' - Paul Bowman, Senior Lecturer in Cultural Studies, Cardiff University

'Modest in scope, persistent in pursuit of its topic, even avowedly personal and sentimental at times, this short book promises to be a long player: it will spark students' engagement in the animating debates and questions of cultural studies. In short: A Passion for Cultural Studies delivers on the promise of its title.' – Richard Stamp, Senior Lecturer of Media and Cultural Studies, Bath Spa University

'The engaging quality of this text is in no small part due to the supple and resourceful way that Highmore reinvents the concept of 'passion', tearing it away from its poly-saturated use within commodity advertising, and casting it as the touchstone for a global debate about how and why we care about what we care about. For those who care about the contemporary fate of Cultural Studies, this is a text that demands attention.' – John Mowitt, Professor of Cultural Studies, University of Minnesota
