Consider this statement from Hall: “Against the urgency of people dying in the streets, what in God’s name is the point of cultural studies? […]I think anybody who is into cultural studies seriously as an intellectual practice, must feel, on their pulse, its ephemerality, its insubstantiality, how little it registers, how little we’ve been able to change anything or get anybody to do anything. If you don’t feel that as one tension in the work that you are doing, theory has let you off the hook.”

What does this mean to you? What is “ephemerality”, or “insubstantiality”, and why does Hall refer to the serious intellectual practice of cultural studies this way? Describe in your own words the “tension” Hall is talking about, and whether or not you think there is a point to cultural studies in the midst of that tension. If there is a point, what is it?

Return to this discussion before the end of the week and post a thoughtful reply to at least TWO of your peers’ posts. (Thoughtful = detailed.)
