On culture and representation

  • Eneida Leal Cunha Pontifícia Universidade Católica do Rio de Janeiro
Keywords: Stuart Hall, Cultural Studies, representation


The recently released Hall’s Cultural Representations has two long articles from courses given by the Jamaican intellectual at The Open University in London in the 1990s: the first presents the author’s version for the so-called “linguistic turn” in the “representation” studies in the cultural context from the Saussurean structuralism to Michel Foucault; in the second, starting from a compilation of images that comprises more than a century, Hall exposes and analyzes the formation and naturalization in the media of the nexus between racial difference and black body’s subalternization. These are lucid, well-argued and generous contributions for cultural studies in Brazil.
