The writer of this chapter discusses the intricate difficulties of translating such keywords as “popular culture” and “mass culture” from English to Chinese, and of doing so in the context of China's “vastly different history and reality.” Situating the timing of the arrival of Cultural Studies within the intellectual as well as social upheaval of Chinese globalization and its attendant modes of class stratification and de-politicization, she argues that the promise of Cultural Studies there is to reactivate a politics that “is not only about critique, but reconstruction.”

Keywords:   Cultural Studies in China, Confusion, mass culture, popular culture, hegemony, post-Cold war Era
