Yep. And not all cultural studies are as you put it: >Oh, dear. Cultural studies generally makes me livid. Can I get this in the essentials?? "Post-structuralism is essentially the misapplication of an outmoded theory of linguists to everything."< There are so many kinds ::eyes light up:: of cultural studies and to lump them with the all the tired, old neo-Marxists & neo-Chompskians is rather like throwing away a high-quality textbook just cuz the authors/editors don't all have "comfortable ideas & opinions" or that 1/3 the book is blather & 2/3 is great-to-out-fikkin'-standin'.
