Summary: bell hooks makes a compelling argument for the transformative power of cultural criticism
Summary: In this, her first feature video presentation, extensively illustrated with many of the images she critiques, Bell Hooks makes a compelling argument for the transformative power of cultural criticism. She demonstrates how learning to think critically was central to her own self-transformation and how it can play a role in students' quest for a sense of agency and identity. In Part One, "On Cultural Criticism", Hooks talks about the theoretical foundations that inform her work. In Part Two, "Doing Cultural Criticism", Hooks demonstrates the value of cultural studies in concrete analysis. (The Media Education Foundation)
