We are living in an era in which higher education is increasingly policed, in part through pressure on universities to deliver so-called quality in mechanical, technical ways. One consequence of this is the targeting of oppositional and interdisciplinary subjects. In a series of provocative and accessible essays, A Question of Discipline explores cultural studies pedagogies and praxis as a case study of the contradictions produced when teaching and researching from radical agendas take place within hierarchical and oppressive institutional contexts. The book opens up critical debates about self-reflexivity in university teaching; about the transformation of oppressive power relations toward more inclusive teaching and learning cultures; and about the paradoxical locations of practitioners, teachers, and learners of cultural studies within universities. A Question of Discipline will be essential reading for teachers and students of cultural and media studies, anthropology, education, sociology, and womens studies. }We are living in an era in which higher education is increasingly policed, in part through pressure on universities to deliver so-called quality in mechanical, technical ways.
