Steiner Co-Edits 'Key Concepts in Critical Cultural Studies'
Linda Steiner co-edited with Clifford Christians, Sandage Professor of Communications at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaig, the recent volume Key Concepts in Critical Cultural Studies.
This volume brings together sixteen essays on key and intersecting topics in critical cultural studies from major scholars in the field. Chapters show the evolving understanding of critical concepts such as history, culture, identity, politics, ethics, globalization, and technology, with Steiner writing about community. The essays address the extent to which these concepts have been useful to scholars, policy makers, and citizens, as well as the ways they must be rethought and reconsidered if they are to continue to be viable.
"An unusually full and rich--and sometimes passionate--conversation on communication and culture, this volume offers a selection of illuminating and provocative responses to the life's work of James W. Carey."--Carolyn Kitch, author of Pages from the Past: History and Memory in American Magazines
"A creative approach to connecting key elements in a sometimes abstract field. Recommended for students and scholars of critical and cultural studies"--Lee Wilkins, coeditor of The Handbook of Mass Media Ethics
