Performing Culture presents a detailed and probing account of
cultural studies' changing fixations with theory, method, policy,
text, production, audience and the micro-politics of the everyday.
John Tulloch encourages academics and students to take seriously
the need to break down the separation between high and low cultural
studies. Tulloch's case studies show that the performance of
cultural meanings occurs in forms as diverse as The Royal
Shakespeare Company's Shakespeare and Chekhov productions and our
everyday work and leisure encounters. Drawing upon anthropological
and dramatic studies of performance, the book emphasizes that
academic research also performs cultural meaning. A central feature
of the book is its reflexive consideration of the representations
of culture constructed by academic 'experts'.
