Cultural Theory, Cultural Studies

So you do cultural studies, or wonder what they are? Fish around here and pretty soon all will be clear(er). But don't generalize too much - this page reflects only my own interests and does not claim to be a general representation of cultural theory in all its glory.

Note: one of my very favorite sources of all things Cultural-Studies-Esque is the English Server. They are chock full of goodies.

For more specific information, try the following sub-pages (note that they are not mutually exclusive categories; shop around):

  • Body knowledges
  • Cultural Studies of Science
  • Feminism
  • Marxism
  • Media theory
  • More general philosophy
  • Postmodernism
  • Psychoanalysis, anti-psychiatry, and friends
