English abstract
Abstract This chapter re-envisions the influence of Stuart Hall in British political and cultural history with an emphasis on two incidences of remediation; a screening of John Akomfrah’s film The Stuart Hall Project followed by a conversation between Lola Young and Faye Ginsburg, moderated by Anders Høg Hansen at the Voice & Matter conference, Malmö, September 2014. Following Young and Ginsburg’s discussion, the article reads as reflections on culture, identity and the movements and ideas Stuart Hall inspired or became inspired by. Notably, Akomfrah’s film as well as the panel discussion reflects on significant years of Stuart Hall’s academic and activist journey, the 1970s and 1980s, coinciding with increasing social tension in Britain. A general introduction (by Anders Høg Hansen) is followed by the edited conversation, which has been shortened slightly with a few changes to original chronology to fit into a thematic organization: Voice and Sound, The Public Intellectual, Multiculturalism, The Dip into Feminism, and finally; Art, Heritage and Social Change.
