  Article:   CULTURE STUDY AND CULTURAL STUDIES.

Authors:  ADRIAN RADU.
 
       
         
  Abstract:  Culture Studies and Cultural Studies starts from the premise that the field covered by the concept of culture is wider and more abstract, but also more socialised today, referring to more varied aspects of social life. These other products of the human mind, previously ignored as topics of study are now termed as ‘culture’, illustrating thus the idea of culture seen as a way of life. Consequently, the borderline between ‘high culture’ and ‘popular culture’ tends to disappear and the new directions of study report on new fields, niches formerly avoided, like, for example, youth culture. The article insists on a few such instances and the way they are seen in Britain nowadays, pleading for the further development of the new canon called ‘cultural studies’, as a necessity for an organised structure to deal with new manifestations of the human mind in its creative state.
