Hall, Stuart

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapters


Stuart Hall (1932–) is a cultural theorist, scholar, mentor, and critic of contemporary politics and → modernity, whose work has profoundly shaped the advancement of → cultural studies as an intellectual and interventionist practice. Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Hall moved in 1951 to Bristol, England, as part of the Windrush generation, and later entered Merton College, University of Oxford, on a Rhodes Scholarship to study literature. His years at Oxford saw him develop an acute interest in socialist British history, nationalist “West Indian” thought, international left politics, and continental philosophy. In the 1950s and 1960s, after working on Universities and Left Review (with Charles Taylor, Raphael Samuel, and Gabriel Pearson), he joined E. P. Thompson, Raymond Williams, and others to launch the New Left Review. Copyright © 2010 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd. All rights reserved.
