Abstract

This position paper paper was presented at a CMU symposium entitled " Why Cultural Studies Matters." It is a collaborative effort produced by LCT students at CMU. It is meant as a response to our perceived sense that cultural studies stands nearly alone as an intellectual project that is forthrightly political. In fact, we argue that all knowledge production is political and that there is a danger in failing to understand this.
