Take Back Higher Education pp Cite as. Cultural studies as a field seems to have passed into the shadows of academic interests. Globalization and political economy have become the privileged concerns of left academics as we move into the new millennium. Matters of agency, consciousness, pedagogy, rhetoric, and persuasion are central to any public discourse about politics, not to mention education itself. In fact, as we argue below, culture is a central sphere of politics; it is the one site that offers both a language of critique and possibility, a sphere in which matters of economy, institutional power relations, globalization, and politics can be recognized, critically understood, and collectively engaged.

In fact, as we argue below, culture is a central sphere of politics; it is the one site that offers both a language of critique and possibility, a sphere in which matters of economy, institutional power relations, globalization, and politics can be recognized, critically understood, and collectively engaged. Hence, the promise of cultural studies, especially as a fundamental aspect of higher education, does not reside in a false opposition between culture and material relations of power, but in a project that bridges these concerns as part of a larger transformative and democratic politics in which matters of pedagogy and agency play a central role.
Critical media education, radical democracy, and the reconstruction of education. Douglas Kellner; Jeff Share. This article explores the theoretical underpinnings of critical media education and analyzes contrasting approaches to teaching it. Combining cultural studies with critical pedagogy, we argue for a critical media literacy that aims to expand the notion of literacy to include a wide range of forms of media culture, information and communication technologies and new media, as well as deepen the potential of literacy education to critically analyze relationships between media and audiences, information and power. A multiperspectivist approach addressing issues of gender, race, class and power is used to explore the interconnections of media literacy, cultural studies and critical pedagogy. Our version of critical media literacy integrates analysis with production and aims at empowering students to participate fully in their society and thus promotes radical democracy and social justice. Key words: Media literacy - Critical media literacy - Media education - Critical pedagogy - Cultural studies - Radical democracy.

Description The first purpose of this course is to provide a survey of major perspectives concerning the role of mediated communication in contemporary society. The inclusion of the words "theory" and "criticism" indicates a concern with social scientific as well as humanistic perspectives regarding this role. The absence of the word "mass" as in "mass communication" indicates 1 a growing recognition of the importance of general theories of communication and language for understanding mediated communication and 2 an appreciation for the many ways in which the merger of technology and communication have resulted in "non-mass" mediated communication such as telephone and computer communication, which carry major social, economic and political consequences for our society. This leads to the second purpose of this course: To consider that the very possibility of communication depends less on so-called "facts" than on the social, political and economic context of communication. The third purpose is to provide a continuing opportunity to write communication criticism.

Riani E. Hybridity has been defined in many terms. Subsequently, cultural hybridity is associated with different meanings, as seen from a spectrum of theoretical and disciplinary perspectives. In the realm of Transnational American Studies in Indonesia, the hybridization of American Media and American Corporate Culture into those domains in Indonesia would be an observable transnational cultural phenomenon. American corporate culture has a hegemonic dominance in the world as it has in Indonesia.
