Advancing Cultural Studies: Report from an international workshop at Södertörn Conference Center, Lidingö near Stockholm, 4-5 February, 1999
1999 (English)Report (Other academic)
In modernity, culture is everywhere. So is cultural studies, it seems. But cultural studies needs to be advanced, in two senses: to be promoted but also to be ameliorated. Culture is focal in late modern societies, and should be so in research. New encounters and innovative modes of study are necessary to deal with the new kinds of problems posed by current cultural developments. The international and interdisciplinary field of cultural studies well deserves to be spread, but also longs for regenerative initiatives. There is now in Sweden an option to take a decisive step in this direction.
This is what this report argues for.
