The Year’s Work in Critical and Cultural Theory 2012

Volume 20, Issue 1 is freely available online

The Year’s Work in Critical and Cultural Theory is a companion volume to The Year’s Work in English Studies. It provides a narrative bibliography of published work, recording significant debates and issues of interest across a broad range of research in the humanities and social sciences. As the fields of critical and cultural studies shift, so the range and scope of the journal alters, and current volumes include chapters on Digital Media, Science and Medicine, and Popular Culture. The Year’s Work in Critical and Cultural Theory functions as a bibliographical tool of practical use to scholars and students alike, as well as a lively collaboration with contemporary debates.
