Description

Representation, subjectivity and sexuality continue to be central to scholarly inquiry in the humanities and social sciences. Deciphering Culture explores their relationship, each author taking a distinct approach to the concept of 'curiosity' as a way of deciphering the working of particular cultural formations. In the process they address a variety of topics including the historical formation of subjectivities, identities and differences; cultural conduct and habits of the self; everyday cultures and negotiation; consumption and the body; memory, history and autobiography; and the ethics of critical and textual inquiry. This fascinating book will appeal to students and academics from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds in the social sciences and cultural studies. Jane Crisp is Adjunct Senior Lecturer in the School of Film, Media and Cultural Studies at Griffith University. Kay Ferres is Senior Lecturer in the School of Humanities at Griffith University. Gillian Swanson is Reader in Cultural History and Policy at the University of the West of England.
