Glenn Jordan and Chris Weedon look at the role of culture in reproducing and contesting social relations of class, gender and race. They focus on relationships between culture, subjectivity, and power, in what is the first comprehensive introduction to contemporary cultural politics. aeo Whose culture shall be the official one and whose shall be subordinated? aeo What cultures shall be regarded as worthy of display and which shall be hidden? aeo Whose history shall be remembered and whose forgotten? aeo What images of social life shall be projected and which shall be marginalized? aeo What voices shall be heard and which shall be silenced? aeo Who is representing whom and on what basis? aeo How can marginalized and oppressed people be empowered to change their social position? aeo What is cultural democracy and how can it be achieved? These key questions are among the radical issues Cultural Politics addresses, through case studies from Britain, North America, Eastern Europe and Australia.
