Understanding Richard Hoggart by Ben Clarke

Professor Ben Clarke, English, has recently published Understanding Richard Hoggart: A Pedgogy of Hope.  According to the publisher, it "is a timely reevaluation of this foundational figure in Cultural Studies, a critical but friendly review of both Hoggart's work and reputation."

The book "uses new archival sources to critically evaulate Hoggart's contribution and influence, set his work in context, and determine its current relevance."

According to James Curran of Goldsmiths,University of London, this publication is a "a fascinating and insightful analysis of a leading public intellectual, obsessive auto-biographer, founder of a new academic discipline and original cultural critic."
