Australian Cultural Studies

A Reader

Here, two of Australia's leading cultural critics bring together work that represents a distinctive national tradition, moving between high theory and detailed readings of localized cultural practices. Ethnographic audience research, cultural policy studies, popular consumption, "bad" aboriginal art, landscape in feature films, style, form and history in TV miniseries, and the intersections of tourism with history and memory --- these are among the topics addressed in a landmark volume that cuts across myriad traditional disciplines.

"This is the best collection on cultural studies that I have yet to see. Anyone with an interest in cultural studies, feminism, postcolonialism, or critical theory will want to read it."
-- Larry Grossberg, co-editor of Cultural Studies
