Cultural Studies is the multi – and interdisciplinary study of culture, defined anthropologically as a “way of life,” performatively as symbolic practice, and ideologically as the collective product of media and cultural industries, i. e., pop culture. Although Cultural Studies is a relative newcomer to the human­ities and social sciences, in less than half a century it has taken interdiscipli­nary scholarship to a new level of sophistication, reinvigorating the liberal arts curriculum with new theories, new topics, and new forms of intellectual partnership.

The Cultural Studies series includes topics such as construction of iden­tities; regionalism/nationalism; cultural citizenship; migration; popular cul­ture; consumer cultures; media and film; the body; postcolonial criticism; cultural policy; sexualities; cultural theory; youth culture; class relations; and gender.

The Cultural Studies series from Wilfrid Laurier University Press invites submission of manuscripts concerned with critical discussions on power rela­tions concerning gender, class, sexual preference, ethnicity, and other macro and micro sites of political struggle.
