What’s the Matter With Cultural Studies?

There’s an interesting article by Michael Bérubé in today’s Chronicle of Higher Education, entitled “What’s the Matter With Cultural Studies?,” which explores the failures of cultural studies to have its intended impact on either the academy or the wider political world. It might give you a sense of where we’re headed this semester — less in Bérubé’s sense of the field’s failures, than in the sense of what it ought to be. It would be good for us to keep this in view this semester, and keep in mind how the future of cultural studies might help correct these failures.
