Doing Cultural Theory teaches more than just the basics of cultural theory. It unpacks its complexities with real-life examples, and shows 42555 9780857024855readers how to link theory and practice. This book:
• offers accessible introductions to how cultural studies has engaged with key theories in structuralism, poststructuralism and postmodernism

• teaches straightforward ways of practising these theories so students learn to think for themselves

• uses 'Practice' boxes to show students how to apply cultural theory in the real world

• guides students through the literature with carefully selected further reading recommendations

Other textbooks only show how others have analyzed and interpreted the world. Doing Cultural Theory takes it a step further and teaches students step-by-step how to do cultural theory for themselves.
