Cultural Studies – There and Here


Abstract: This paper aims to offer a new approach of the so‐called Cultural Studies from an East‐European perspective. Political and ideological problematizing – including and especially those identified at the level of the nation – rest upon different realities in Eastern Europe and in Western Europe or North America. Drawing this parallel, the author insists on the major distinction between difference conceived as value per se and value understood as difference.
