Hall, Stuart

This is an advance summary of a forthcoming article in the Oxford Research Encyclopedia of Communication. Please check back later for the full article.

Stuart Hall (1932–2014) was a Jamaican-born, British-based theorist, critic, and activist between the late 1950s and his death in 2014. Known both for theoretical and empirical work on culture and communication, and as a public intellectual, Hall’s scholarly writings and charismatic teaching were matched by his columns and interviews in magazines and newspapers, as well as appearances on television and radio.
