Abstract and Keywords

This article describes an interface between political theory and cultural studies, on that emerged with particular force and clarity in the work of American political theorists writing at the end of the twentieth century. It discusses the methodological contributions that resulted from this interface and analyses academic practices of political theory and cultural studies within national institutional histories. It suggests that the possibilities initially opened up by interfacial work need to be brought together into an integrated account of contemporary state power within the global capitalist economy.

Keywords: political theory, cultural studies, political theorists, institutional histories, state power, capitalist economy
