Sinopsis:

The fundamental task facing students of cultural studies is to apply theory to critical practice.  Introducing Cultural Studies: Learning through Practice provides readers with the conceptual tools to practice cultural analysis for themselves.  Further, readers will:

  • Get a basic idea of the historical development of cultural studies
  • Become familiar with important critics in the British cultural studies tradition
  • Get a concise but critically aware introduction to key concepts
  • Become conversant with some of the main areas of interest to cultural studies
  • Develop awareness of how theory can be transformed into practice
  • Develop the skills required to produce well-argued and informed projects
  • See, from numerous practical examples, how concepts work in practice

Each chapter has a short introduction to explain the basic content and a brief description of the main learning goals.  Chapters are concluded with brief summaries, references and advice on further reading.  The book is full of exercises to motivate readers to respond to the book in an active and enjoyable way.

This book, by combining heuristic thinking with creative-critical approaches, provides undergraduates with an assured, witty, engaging and essential introduction to cultural studies.
David Walton is affiliated with the Universidad de Murcia, and is Senior Lecturer in Cultural Studies.

To listen to David Walton’s musical response to Adorno′s famous essay on jazz, please visit Adorno: Jazz Perennial Fashion . This song accompanies pages 64 to 66 of the book together with a series of questions designed to get readers to evaluate the positive and negative aspects of Adorno′s approach.

He was awarded his doctorate in 1992 by the University of Murcia. He began his teaching career in further education in Britain before being contracted as an associate lecturer in the English Department of the University of Murcia in 1989. He became Senior Lecturer in the area of Cultural Studies in 2001 and has promoted the area in Spain for more than ten years. He is one of the founder members of the Culture and Power group which has organized annual conferences in Spain and Portugal every year since 1995 and has contributed to most of the publications to come out of these conferences. He is a founder member and President of the Iberian Association of Cultural Studies (IBACS). He has co-organized conferences on English-speaking cultures and co-organized two International Conferences on cultural studies for IBACS, both held at the Universidad de Murcia. Apart from his undergraduate teaching, he has taught audiovisual translation at M.A. level and has given doctorate courses on the construction of national identity and given many conference papers. He currently teaches cultural studies at undergraduate level and postmodern theory and culture at M.A. level. He has published widely, his publications reflecting his research interests which include literary and cultural theory, cultural studies, popular culture, visual culture and postmodern theories of culture.

His latest books are ′Introducing Cultural Studies: Learning Through Practice′ (SAGE, 2008) and ′Doing Cultural Theory′ (SAGE, 2012). He has a chapter on Chris Morris′ satire which will appear in ′No Known Cure: The Comedy of Chris Morris′ (edited by James Leggott & Jamie Sexton (Palgrave Macmilan, 2003), and has a number of other chapters which are in print on the interfaces between philosophy and cultural studies and graffiti and popular culture.
