Larry Grossberg | From a financial crisis to political ontology

The conflict between cultural and economic accounts has structured the human sciences (and critical communication studies) for some time. I want to consider both the possibilities and limits for cultural studies to take up economic matters and incorporate them into its broader contextual analyses, and to illustrate this by considering what cultural studies can contribute to understanding the contemporary financial/economic crisis. Finally, I want to explore how this analysis can give us new insight into the specificity of the cultural and political problematics of the contemporary conjuncture.
