Chapter 27—Cultural Studies

  1. Visit an Internet news site and read one of the prominently-featured articles. What stories are told in the article? Which stories, although relevant, are not told? How would Hall explain this?
     
  2. Think of the most recent movie you’ve watched.  In what ways does the movie function to perpetuate dominant cultural values? Do you see any ways that the movie functions to resist the ideological status quo?
     
  3. One of the sharpest critiques of cultural studies concerns whether scholarship should be done with the aim of promoting a specific political ideology. Explain why scholars in the socio-psychological, cybernetic, and/or rhetorical traditions might particularly have such concerns. Then, explain why you either agree with those concerns or why you dismiss them.
     
  4. Hall’s theory was developed before the age of social media. Consider what Hall would say about whether such sites preserve or challenge hegemony.
     
  5. Would Hall's analysis of media in society be different if the news media were publicly owned? If so, how? What problem(s) would public ownership solve? What new problem(s) would it create?
