  • Drawn from across the globe, the contributors to this encyclopedia represent the best communication scholars in the field of critical cultural studies.
  • The articles sit within the broader ORE, which allows them to be updated and facilitates connection with other topics.
  • The critical content and orientation of the volume makes it particularly appropriate during a period of conservative backlash and the (re)emergence of the white supremacist Right in politics and culture.
