Media and Cultural Studies: KeyWorks is a comprehensive anthology of the most significant and frequently cited theoretical readings pertaining to critical approaches to media culture and communications. Spanning the gamut from the writings of Antonio Gramsci and the Frankfurt School to recent essays on identity, race, gender, and the postmodern turn, this book offers a range of core texts that have never before been collected into a single volume. The burgeoning popularity of media and cultural studies in a variety of academic disciplines makes this book an indispensable scholarly and pedagogical tool, particularly because of the in-depth analytical overview of critical media studies provided in the editors' introduction, as well as the annotations for each section of the book. The scope and depth of the volume fill a longstanding gap in the literature in this area; the book will find a permanent place on the bookshelves of scholars in this field, as well as being required reading for students in cultural studies, media studies, sociology, and related disciplines. Includes an analytical overview that provides a scholarly orientation to the theoretical developments charted in this book. Compiles a comprehensive set of core texts, many of which are out of print or difficult to access. Tracks historic phases in theory, including postmodernism and new media and represents classic Western texts from the likes of Gramsci and Barthes as well as non-Western texts from scholars such as Garcia-Canclini and Mohanty.

The work of cultural and political theorist Stuart Hall, a pioneer of Cultural Studies who passed away in 2014, remains more relevant than ever. In Stuart Hall Lives, scholars engage with Hall's most enduring essays, including "Encoding/Decoding" and "Notes on Deconstructing the Popular," bringing them into the context of the 21st century. Different chapters consider resistant media consumers, online journalism, debates around the American Confederate flag and rainbow flags, the #OscarsSoWhite controversy, and contemporary moral panics. The book also includes Hall's important essay on French theorist Louis Althusser, which is introduced here by Lawrence Grossberg and Jennifer Slack. Finally, two reminiscences by one of Hall's former colleagues and one of his former students offer wide-ranging reflections on his years as director of Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies at the University of Birmingham, UK, and as head of the Department of Sociology at The Open University. Together, the contributions paint a picture of a brilliant theorist whose work and legacy is as vital as ever. This book was originally published as a special issue of Critical Studies in Media Communication.
