Stuart Hall, Writings on Media: History of the Present – Duke University Press, November 2021; and BBC Sounds ‘Afterwords: Stuart Hall’

Stuart Hall, Writings on Media: History of the Present, edited by Charlotte Brunsdon – Duke University Press, November 2021. This is the latest volume in the Selected Writings series.

Writings on Media gathers more than twenty of Stuart Hall’s media analyses, from scholarly essays such as “Encoding and Decoding in the Television Discourse” (1973) to other writings addressed to wider publics. Hall explores the practices of news photography, the development of media and cultural studies, the changing role of television, and how the nation imagines itself through popular media. He attends to Britain’s imperial history and the politics of race and cultural identity as well as the media’s relationship to the political project of the state. Testifying to the range and agility of Hall’s critical and pedagogic engagement with contemporary media culture—and also to his collaborative mode of working—this volume reaffirms his stature as an innovative media theorist while demonstrating the continuing relevance of his methods of analysis.
