Disciplinary Divide: Is There a Bottom Line in Cultural Studies?

Allen Chun.

It goes without saying that there is perhaps no holistic field of study called cultural studies, despite the eminence of some schools of thought, insofar as it has diverse interdisciplinary roots and theoretical influences. While these diverse theoretical roots have engendered the general rise of cultural studies, few people have focused on the institutional parameters that have conditioned acceptance of these same paradigms, which can serve on the other hand as sources of friction across disciplines.
