This volume provides an exploration of the manifold ways pedagogy is enacted in cultural studies practice. Pedagogy in the book comes to stand as far more than simply the art of teaching ; contributors explore how pedagogy defines and shapes their practice as cultural studies scholars. Chapters variously highlight the role of pedagogy in cultural studies practice, including formal, classroom situations where cultural studies is deployed to teach as part of degree or coursework programs, but importantly also as something removed from the formal classroom, as situated within the research act via public engagement or through social activism as a public pedagogy. In so doing, the book chart a course for understanding cultural studies as an active and engaged discipline interested in understanding cultural flows and production as sites of learning and exchange.
