Author Meaghan Morris asks how feminist culture critics can participate in political struggles about history. Questioning both contemporary cultural theory that imagines a world ""beyond"" history and feminist approaches to culture that minimize questions of economy, class, and nation, Morris argues that history created by popular culture is never truly ""national"" in scale or force. 11 photos.

What good is history to cultural studies? Meaghan Morris looks at struggles over "history" in social settings created by capitalism: in tourist landscapes and in television time. The materials of her analysis are motels, shopping malls, beaches, and local politics. She focuses on history and cultural heritage as issues of controversy for white working-class and poor suburban communities, as well as for urban cultural elites.
