Abstract

The article presents ‘cultural studies’, especially in its symbiotic relation to theory, not as a field but as an intellectual inclination (thematized but hardly exhausted by the label). It argues that, while cultural studies may be historically determined (its inception can be dated to the early 1960s) and geographically located (a consequence of Western philosophies’ leaning toward self-deterritorialization and migration beyond European terms), it resists ossification, as is manifest in the ways in which the questions that it has at heart traverse new critical work from an Anglo-American angle, but not only.
