Beschreibung

Divided into seven themed chapters: signs, media, body, time, space, memory and identity, this book aims to provide a fresh approach to complex theoretical and historical questions. Sparking the reader's interest in literature from different genres and periods, this volume not only provides a useful introduction, it is an important study tool which supports the reader's own endeavours to get to grips with the relationship between reading and major key questions of culture.
"This book by Aleida Assmann consistently surpasses a narrow definition of 'English Studies' and opens up new, fresh perspectives that enable fascinating views on current questions. The theme-centred, coherent and well written Introduction to Cultural Studies can be considered outstanding in every respect: it will take a permanent place among the introductions to English Literature and Cultural Studies." (Till Kinzel)
