Abstract

This chapter outlines some of the main features that characterize cultural studies in Europe by providing a historical, theoretical, and bibliographical review of their main authors, debates, and texts. In particular, we start by tracing historically the origins of this current of thought situating it at two research centers: the Birmingham School at the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies (CCCS) in the United Kingdom and the Centre d’Études de Communications des Masses (CECMAS) in France. To complete this European analysis, we have also considered the Italian, Portuguese and Spanish cases, which we will contrast to the British and French contexts. We then present the debates and theoretical tensions currently characterizing cultural studies in Europe. Finally, we analyze qualitatively some of the key reference texts used to analyze culture and media within Europe. Ultimately, the present text is an invitation to think of what has been carried out so far in order to plan the future challenges that a European culturalist research will have to provide answers to.
