CCCS50 update

Another update on our current research project on the Birmingham Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies, from our colleague Kieran Connell:

The project to mark next year’s 50th anniversary of the Birmingham Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies is gathering pace. The other week I went down to London to interview Stuart Hall, who was of course a founding member of the Centre and its director for more than ten years. Stuart reflected on his time at the Centre, the politics of the original cultural studies project and where he thinks cultural studies is at today. We filmed the interview, but you’ll have to wait to see it in full – we’re going to show it at the conference  we’re organising to mark the 50th anniversary of the Centre this June (more information about which can be found here). If you can’t wait until then, though, you can listen to the other interviews I’ve conducted with key players here, as well as download PDFs of the Centre’s Stencilled Occasional Papers here. Tickets for the conference will go on sale very soon!
