Summary

Doing Cultural Theory is a textbook and a toolkit that teaches the basics of cultural theory, unpacks its complexities with real-life examples, and shows readers how to link theory and practice. Other textbooks only show how others have analyzed and interpreted the world. This book takes it a step further and teaches students step-by-step how to do cultural theory for themselves.
