Studienarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Soziologie - Methodologie und Methoden, Note: Pass, Universitat Basel (Institut fur Soziologie), Veranstaltung: Soziologie der Macht, Sprache: Deutsch, Anmerkungen: Proseminararbeit in Soziologie zum Thema Macht in der soziologischen Theorie. Die Arbeit zeichnet die historische Entwicklung der Methoden und Paradigmen der Cultural Studies nach: eine ubersichtliche Einfuhrung in eine kritische Wissenschaftstheorie., Abstract: Ziel dieser Proseminararbeit ist es, einen Uberblick uber die Entstehung und die Entwicklung der Cultural Studies zu liefern. Dabei sollen sowohl die historischen Hintergrunde als auch die Methoden und Grundkategorien dieser Wissenschaftstradition vorgestellt werden. Die gesellschaftspolitischen Veranderungen im England des ausgehenden 19. und im 20. Jahrhundert und die mit selbigen Entwicklung einhergehende Veranderung der gesellschaftlichen Auffassung des Kultur"-Begriffes an sich sollen durch eine eingehende Analyse von Primar- und Sekundarliteratur der Cultural Studies vorgestellt und diskursanalytisch betrachtet werden. In reiner Theoriearbeit sollen auf der einen Seite die Autoren und Pioniere der Cultural Studies vorgestellt werden und die Grundzuge der politischen Tradition dieser Wissenschaftstheorie nachgezeichnet werden. Auf der anderen Seite sollen die Nachbetrachtungen der Methoden und Paradigmen, die fur die weitgefacherten Anwendungsgebiete der Cultural Studies typisch sind im zweiten Teil der Arbeit vorgestellt werden. Da die Cultural Studies als politische Wissenschaft verstanden werden muss, konnen die historischen und gesellschaftspolitischen Veranderungen nicht von der Analyse der Methoden getrennt werden, vielmehr mussen die Cultural Studies auch in ihrer Nachbetrachtung immer in diesen Kontext eingebunden werden, um ihrem selbstverordneten politischen Auftrag und ihrer Selbstreflexivitat gerecht werden zu konnen. Diese Arbeit beschaftigt sich ausschliesslich mit der Auseinande"

Im deutschsprachigen Raum fehlt eine Analyse, die nach dem systematischen Wert der Cultural Studies für pädagogisches Deuten und Handeln fragt. Genau diesem Zusammenhang widmet sich das vorliegende Buch, das untersucht, inwiefern das erkenntnispolitische Projekt der Cultural Studies zur Erhellung pädagogisch relevanter Felder und Sachverhalte, aber auch zur Profilierung einer spezifischen pädagogischen Ausrichtung beitragen kann. Die Beiträge bringen unterschiedliche Perspektiven zur Geltung und in ein gewissermaßen dialogisches Verhältnis, um ein facettenreiches und in sich spannungsvolles Nachdenken über den Zusammenhang von Cultural Studies und Pädagogik zu eröffnen und fortzuschreiben. Mit Beiträgen von Alicia de Alba, S. Karin Amos, Ana Laura Gallardo Gutiérrez, Kien Nghi Ha, Andreas Hepp, Peter McLaren, Paul Mecheril, Norbert Meder, Harm Paschen, Sven Sauter, Valerie Scatamburlo-D'Annibale, Markus Schmitz, Rainer Winter und Monika Witsch.

`This is a tour de force... It combines luminous discussion of the core conceptual issues of cultural studies, with a hard-headed, practical sense of how research in the field gets done. The result is a seriously smart, comprehensive survey of the whole terrain of cultural studies itself. This is a book on methods which readers will be able to make their own; and which -- uniquely in the genre -- will keep them buzzing' - Bill Schwarz, Queen Mary University of London 'The Practice of Cultural Studies is an original introduction to the field. It offers a sophisticated "how-to" guide to doing research in cultural studies. From the difficulties of formulating a problem to the unique articulations of specific methodologies in cultural studies, students will find this book both useful and challenging' - Professor Lawrence Grossberg, University of North Carolina What is distinctive about cultural research? How does one do Cultural Studies? Unlike many other disciplines, cultural studies has not been explict about the nature of its practice. This book aims to redress the balance in favour of those who are studying culture by providing a comprehensive guide to researching and writing. Based on the methods course at Nottingham Trent and addressed to advanced undergraduates, Masters Level students and those just commencing a PhD, this book aims to provide an overview of specific research traditions in cultural studies, whilst also situating those traditions in their historical context. The Practice of Cultural Studies: · Identifies the main methods of researching culture · Demonstrates how theory can inform and enable the practice of research · Explores the ways in which research practices and methods both produce and are produced by knowledge · Looks at the implications of the 'cultural turn' for disciplines other than cultural studies The Practice of Cultural Studies will be an essential text for students of cultural studies and a useful guide to others studying culture in a range of disciplinary contexts across the humanities and social sciences.

Praise for the first edition: "This is a great introduction and contribution to the subject. It is unusually wide-ranging, covering the historical development of cultural theory and deftly highlighting key problems that just won't go away." - Matthew Hills, Cardiff University "To say that the scope of the book's coverage is wide-ranging would be an under-statement. Few texts come to mind that have attempted such a thorough overview of the central tenets of cultural studies." - Stuart Allan, Bournemouth University This fully revised edition of the best selling introduction to cultural studies offers students an authoritative, comprehensive guide to cultural studies. Clearly written and accessibly organized the book provides a major resource for lecturers and students. Each chapter has been extensively revised and new material covers globalization, the post 9/11 world and the new language wars. The emphasis upon demonstrating the philosophical and sociological roots of cultural studies has been retained along with boxed entries on key concepts and issues. Particular attention is paid to demonstrating how cultural studies clarifies issues in media and communication studies, and there are chapters on the global mediasphere and new media cultures. This is a tried and tested book which has been widely used wherever cultural studies is taught. It is an indispensable undergraduate text and one that will appeal to postgraduates seeking a 'refresher' which they can dip into.
