STUART HALL: SELECTED WRITINGS
EDITED BY C ATHERINE HALL AND BILL SCHWAR Z

Stuart Hall (1932–2014) is widely acknowledged as one of the foremost


cultural theorists and public intellectuals of the late twentieth century.
Though circulated, read, and taught for decades, Hall’s seminal essays are
widely dispersed, with many pieces out of print or difficult to find. Stuart
Hall: Selected Writings brings together Hall’s well-known works with previ-
ously unpublished ones to create a portrait of his wide-ranging intellectual
and political investments. The volumes in the series, which include Hall’s
memoir, are edited by major scholars and organized thematically, cover-
ing topics ranging from race, photography, and Marxism to the Caribbean,
popular culture, and British politics. With this series, Duke University
Press is the official home for the writings of Stuart Hall.

“Christina Sharpe’s deep engagement with the archive of Black knowledge production
across theory, fiction, poetry, and other intellectual endeavors offers an avalanche of
new insights on how to think about anti‑Blackness as a significant and important struc-

generate important intellectual debates and maybe even movements in Black studies,
cultural studies, feminist studies, and beyond. This is where cultural studies should

Third World studies—that pursues a decolonial politics by examining the human
condition broadly, especially in regard to oppression, and critically analyzing
the locations and articulations of power as manifested in the social formation.
Okihiro’s framing of Third World studies moves away from ethnic studies’ lib-
eralism and its U.S.‑centrism to emphasize the need for complex thinking and
political action in the drive for self‑determination. 

“Displaying his customary erudition and insight, Gary Y. Okihiro rethinks the meaning
of ethnic studies, highlighting the existence of a rich but often neglected tradition of
antisubordination scholarship capable of delineating and critiquing how the histories
of imperialism and capitalism have shaped the fatal couplings of social identities and
power. A generative and thought-provoking work by a sophisticated and advanced thinker,
Third World Studies will challenge many ethnic studies scholars and impact how ethnic
studies will proceed to think of itself.”—GEORGE LIPSITZ, author of American Studies

“Writing on citizenship tends to take the legal status of citizens for granted. 
But what happens when a government refuses to recognize its own
citizens? Citizenship in Question uniquely probes how citizenship status
has been challenged by various levels of government and the dire conse-
quences that can ensue. Presenting a great deal of new and little-known
material, this volume is the first of its kind.”—LETI VOLPP, Robert D.
and Leslie Kay Raven Professor of Law in Access to Justice, University of
California, Berkeley
