About This Site

Welcome to the official blog of the Cultural Studies program at George Mason University.

This site is a a forum for the airing of commentary, analysis, and research.

Our open-ended invitation to contributors:

  • How might we engage scholarship with the new times?
  • What is to be learned about modern working and living conditions, both inside and outside the academe?
  • What is the future of knowledge, as distinct from information, under changing technological conditions?
  • Can technology be inserted into the global circuit in ways that foster greater social equality?
  • How might scholarship that engages such questions be judged, and how might its validity and impact be weighed?

What, to borrow a phrase, is to be done?

Debates are welcome.
