    Political Culture Vs. Cultural Studies: Reply to Fenster.Chris Wisniewski - 2007 - Critical Review: A Journal of Politics and Society 19 (1):125-145.
    ABSTRACT A review of two of the strands of cultural studies that Mark Fenster contends are superior to Murray Edelman?s analysis of mass public opinion?Gramsci?s theory of hegemony, and Bourdieu?s sociology?and a more general look at work in the field of cultural studies suggests that all of these alternatives suffer from severe theoretical and methodological limitations. Future studies of culture and politics need to pose questions similar to the ones that preoccupied Edelman, but they must move beyond the political and (...)

    In the ongoing debate about the impact that studies of public ignorance should have on the study of culture, Mark Fenster and Bret Chandler assume that wider political participation must be our goal, because, to them, political ignorance is a culturally imposed, and therefore removable, obstacle?as if, without the baleful influence of culture, political participants would be well informed. Culture is indeed a primary influence on people's political opinions, so political scientists should indeed study the role it plays in the (...)
