Abstract

The essay attempts a comparative analysis of culture studies in the Anglo-American world and in Germany. It tries to sketch out the different origins and methodological approaches used in Anglo-American cultural studies and in German »Kulturwissenschaften« (culture studies) and asks why both styles of thought, although for different reasons, have lost touch with the realm of political economy.
