The battles have been fierce, complicated by the universitys unsettled, ever-chaning nature. In Culture and the Problem of the Deciplines, several of our most prominent critics explore the universitys engagement with culture -- a complex term that they define as a vast number of different, competing representations. Combining critical theory and cultural studies methods, these scholars offer a new understanding of the way universitites shape and define culture -- and the way that teaching and research institutions are chaning in response to international movements, social forces, and the increasing importanceof cultural studies.

Investigating the way high culture (literature, liberal education) and popular culture (fashion, film) are dealt with in the classroom, these essays show that the culture wars of the 1980s and 90s are by no means over- they have simply warped into new, less visible struggles for control of educational funding, curricula, academic standards, and pedagogical authority.
