Modernist Cultural Studies

This final chapter explores the modernism of contemporary cultural studies through the example of popular music. It also discusses the potential of and obstacles to teaching cultural studies through modernism and vice versa. One of the merits of using cultural studies to think about modernism is that, while such an approach makes large claims about the longevity of modernism, it also rescues modernism from being a vague historical abstraction by attending to how modernism is experienced. Cultural studies' analysis of popular music can serve here as an example of its attention to economic, social, and technological conditions that materially inflect modernism in many different situations. This chapter looks at the more tangled relation between the terms cultural studies, modernism, and postmodernism with a discussion of John Hartley's A Short History of Cultural Studies (2003), which explicitly sets out to write a history of cultural studies for the early twenty-first century.

Keywords:   modernism, cultural studies, popular music, postmodernism, John Hartley, history
