Abstract

This paper outlines initial findings drawn from the Cultural Studies Association of Australasia sponsored project Mapping Undergraduate Programs in Cultural Studies in Australia and New Zealand/Aotearoa. The project surveyed programs in Cultural Studies offered by Australian and New Zealand/Aotearoan universities to gauge how Cultural Studies is positioned and the extent to which programs are offered in each country. Highlighting that ‘Cultural Studies’ as both a concept and disciplinary designation conveys some confusion beyond the discipline, and that a ‘failure of presence’ is observable in wider dialogues in the humanities and higher education around the definition and purpose of Cultural Studies, this paper asserts that it is with undergraduate programs, as a major expression and point of contact with the discipline, that insight into Cultural Studies’ disciplinary formulation is found. The paper concludes by drawing attention to initiatives that might be undertaken to further raise the profile of the discipline and define ‘the brand’.
