Book Description

"Denzin and Giardina have brought together the works of leading cultural critics who have given cultural studies a global framework that meets our need to examine the governing strategies of the military, the economy, the media, and educational elites...This is a must-read for those who want cultural studies to really matter in the present moment." Patricia Ticineto Clough Contesting Empire, Globalizing Dissent: Cultural Studies after 9/11 is a landmark text. Leading scholars from cultural studies, education, gender studies, and sociology reposition critical cultural studies research around the goals of moral clarity and political intervention.

Reviews

“In Contesting Empire, Globalizing Dissent: Cultural Studies after 9/11, Denzin and Giardina have brought together the works of leading cultural critics who have given cultural studies a global framework that meets our need for examining the governing strategies of the military, the economy, the media, and educational elites. At the same time, Contesting Empire, Globalizing Dissent counters with the cries of rage from around the world, with which the authors outline a pedagogy of hope and transformation. This is a must-read for those who want cultural studies to really matter in the present moment.”
