Thinking about the here and now of cultural studies

Since its emergence cultural studies has been concerned with the historical materiality of particular moments, places and conjunctures. This blog serves as a platform of exchange among practitioners of cultural studies, who – as researchers, teachers, activists – remain committed to cultural studies’ focus on a specific here and now, a concrete time and place. Our blog takes as its starting point the notion of habitation. How do we dwell in the traditions of cultural studies in our diverse locations? Have some of our categories of analysis and terms of engagements become mere habits? Is cultural studies a space of dissent, or a homely space? For whom? Criticalhabitations emerged from a series of workshops concerned with the ‘here and now’ of cultural studies. Members of the network are based at different universities across Europe and are committed to the ongoing project of cultural studies.
