Radical Cultural Studies

The Centre for Cultural Studies Research at the University of East London is pleased to announce the launch of Radical Cultural Studies, a new book series which commissions monographs and edited collections to provide new and radical analyses of the socio-politics, aesthetics and ethics of contemporary cultures. The series, which will be published by Rowman & Littlefield International, is designed to stimulate debates across and within disciplines, foster new approaches to Cultural Studies, and assess the radical potential of key ideas and theories in the field. Topics may include:

Contemporary cultural forms and their radical potential
Geopolitics, Psychogeographies and Cultural Studies across national borders
Cultural Communication and Irreconcilable Ethnicities
Cultural change and resistant practices
Cultural studies and the future of the university
New political formations of race, gender and sexuality
New cultures articulated by transgendering and transsexuality
New perspectives on war, conflict and forced migration
New theoretical approaches to cultural change and relational aesthetics
Global politics and postcolonialism in contemporary local contexts
Science, technology and cultural forms
Radical politics and new forms of community
Affect, trauma and cultures of memorialization
