Summary

Representation, subjectivity and sexuality continue to be central to scholarly inquiry in the humanities and social sciences. Deciphering Culture explores their relationship, each author taking a distinct approach to the concept of 'curiosity' as a way of deciphering the working of particular cultural formations. In the process they address a variety of topics including:

* the historical formation of subjectivities, identities and differences
* cultural conduct and habits of the self
* everyday cultures and negotiation
* consumption and the body
* memory, history and autobiography
* the ethics of critical and textual inquiry.

This fascinating book will appeal to students and academics from a variety of disciplinary backgrounds in the social sciences and cultural studies.
