Creativity and Academic Activism

John Nguyet Erni

Hong Kong University Press

The writer envisages a “relocation” of Cultural Studies in a closer relation to public institutions active in international struggles for social justice. By situating the discipline in relation to formalized “institutional rules of engagement” — in particular those of international human rights law — He envisages a metamorphosis of its worldly practice into one that perhaps invests as much in professional training and public participation as it does in critique.

Keywords:   Cultural Studies, human rights, ethics, modernity, transnational social movements, global legal apparatus
