This edited volume seeks to combine and highlight the theoretical and practical aspects of teaching by exploring and reflecting on the ways in which Cultural Studies is taught and practiced at both the undergraduate and graduate levels, in the US and internationally. Contributors create a space where connections among Cultural Studies practitioners across generations and locations are formed. Because the alliances built by Cultural Studies practitioners in the U.S. and the global north are deeply shaped by the global south/Third World perspectives, this book extends an invitation to teachers and practitioners in and outside of the US, including those who may offer a transnational perspective on teaching and practicing Cultural Studies. This volume promises to be a trailblazing collection of first-rate essays by leading and emerging figures in the field of Cultural Studies.
