This talk will reflect on some current institutional and disciplinary predicaments for cultural studies in Australia. On the one hand, over the last ten years, cultural studies has gained considerable institutional authority in the Australian higher-education sector. Yet at the same time, cultural studies as a collective project seems fractured, and the capacity and authority of cultural studies to 'speak' on matters of cultural significance seems diminished. This paradox suggests that cultural studies could be thought of as disaggregating, as become different projects with distinctive educational, research and public cultural forms. My aim in discussing these national peculiarities is to explore the transnational relevance of such emerging tendencies.
