Chapter Summary

This chapter explores some of the reasons, connections and articulations that have put cultural studies at the crossroads of the debate about the humanities' changing roles in education, research, and the wider community. Specifically, it addresses the effects of managerialism, the increasingly global business of teaching in the English language, and issues of public accountability and private fundraising. The chapter locates productive sites, to open up lines of fight in what the author believe is an ongoing struggle against redefining and marginalizing, if not obliterating, humanities research and expertise by relegating the humanities to a liberal arts idea of general education. The cultural studies story suggests some productive ways of dealing with ongoing challenges.

Keywords: cultural studies; education; humanities expertise; managerialism; private fundraising issue
