Creativity and Academic Activism

Kuan-Hsing Chen

Hong Kong University Press

Drawing on his own involvement over the past 20 years, in this chapter, the writer pinpoints the shifting dynamics between social movements, Cultural Studies and institutions. He argues that in the late 1980s and early 1990s, the driving forces and inspirations for Cultural Studies in Asia came from engagements in social and political movements; the institutionalization of Cultural Studies from the late 1990s onward has redefined the field as both an intellectual movement and a set of institutional practices.
