Dialogues on Cultural Studies


Dialogues on Cultural Studies

How should the project of cultural studies change for the twenty-first century?
Does theory have general application?
How should we evaluate revolutions?
How should we define countries, like China, on the margins of modernity and post-modernity?
Is a neo-Orientalism emerging in today's world?

These are questions Shaobo Xie and Wang Fengzhen ask a panel of North America's leading cultural critics. What emerges is a remarkable collection of interviews and dialogues that discuss culture, ideology, history, Marxism, modernity, post-modernity, post-colonialism, globalization, and the role of the university and the intellectual in today's society.
