The Year's Work in Critical and Cultural Theory

Now combined in a new series with The Year's Work in English Studies, The Year's Work in Critical and Cultural Theory, edited by Kate McGowan, is an annual narrative bibliography which aims to provide a comprehensive collection of theoretical essays with bibliographies for work published in a given year. Like its sister volume, YWES 78, YWCCT 7 covers work published in 1997. YWCCT 7 reviews over three hundred titles in nineteen chapters divided in two parts. Part I: Critical Theory provides a general introductory chapter, followed by coverage of: Semiotics: Psychoanalysis: Feminisms: Colonial Discourse / Postcolonial Theory: Historicism: Queer Theories / Cultures: and Marxism(s) and Post-Marxism(s). Part II: Culture and Communications offers a general introductory survey of Cultural Studies, with subsequent chapters on: Media Studies: Popular Culture: Australian Popular Culture and Media Studies: Popular Music: Virtual Cultures: Film Theory: Art Histories and Visual Culture Studies: Cultural Policy: Aboriginal Identity: Culture and Art: and Multiculturalism.
