Conjunctures, crises, and cultures: Valuing Stuart Hall

Clarke, John (2014). Conjunctures, crises, and cultures: Valuing Stuart Hall. Focaal, 70 pp. 113–122.



This article explores the significance of the work of Stuart Hall for social and political anthropology. It identifies the concern with concrete conjunctural analysis, the continuing attention to the problem of hegemony, and the centrality of a politics of articulation in theory and practice as core features of Hall’s work. The article also touches on his complex relationship with theory and theorising while grounding his work in a series of political and ethical commitments within and beyond the university.
