"This book is an important step forward for cultural studies. It is a significant effort to re-present cultural studies as a truly international endeavor. With its coverage of cultural studies' enormous geographical diversity, and the range of its speaking positions, it will hopefully reshape the ways we think about and teach cultural studies." Lawrence Grossberg, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill "A-List authors and impressive analysis. This major collection captures the international scope and ambition of cultural studies and alerts us to vital new directions in the field. A must-have book." -- John Hartley, Queensland University of Technology "Internationalizing Cultural Studies is a big, rich, innovative book: conceptually capacious, methodologically diverse, multiple in sites, sophisticated in linkages, well-organized for use, it just calls out for pedagogical application at those global/local pressure points where critical theory gets tested and transformed. This is a powerful work de-centering the global, agitating the local. Drawing on a far-flung trans-disciplinary team, Abbas and Erni have collated exemplary work, highlighted emergent tactics, sites, and paradigm shifts in a beautiful collection that will help frame debates, topics, methods and new trajectories of field-formation in the coming years and across various institutional and disciplinary frameworks." -- Rob Wilson, University of California at Santa Cruz
