Can cultural studies attend to the problems of our globalized world? Or is this project of “engaged scholarship” too deeply rooted in the parochial terrain of the national? This collection of essays – the first volume in the new JMU Cultural Studies publication series – attends to this vital yet difficult question. Based on joint seminars bringing together emerging scholars from Germany and India, the contributions confront “classic texts” from US-American, British, and Indian cultural studies with the specific concerns and contemporary perspectives of the authors. The collection thus tests the potentials of the tradition to speak to the transnational as well as the national environments of the very present. Emphasis is placed on Marxist and feminist legacies, which are then projected into the domains of contemporary disability, food, and film studies.

Tobias Jetter, recently completed his five-year teaching degree in English and History at the Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg (JMU). In addition to completing a thesis on the progressive potentials of nostalgia in popular culture, he has worked as a tutor and a student writing consultant at the same university, and as a schoolteacher outside of it. His research interests include the concrete political potentials of cultural studies in past, present, and future as well as queer theory, film analysis, and the study of nostalgia. He is a former participant of the seminar that served as the basis for this collection. This book is his first work as an editor.
