Abstract:

The paper uses discourses on ‘whiteness’ as a framework to interrogate the contexts and evolution of the Cultural Studies discipline. Drawing on the ideas and life of Stuart Hall, the paper attempts to define a position for the discipline within the praxis of social and critical theories, and asks whether Cultural Studies original ideologies have become lost to the very cultural hegemony it once exposed? Or does the discipline still hold its original potential for challenging racialised cultural discourses?
