ABSTRACT: Students and faculty in one of the only PhD-granting cultural studies programs in the nation respond to Michael Bérubé’s recent opinion piece, “What’s the Matter with Cultural Studies?” They argue that cultural studies programs face the undermining of the public education mandate not only in California but around the country, one aspect of which includes the devaluing and underfunding of the humanities and allied social sciences. But cultural studies as an interdisciplinary field gives us the tools to study, teach, and write about the current crisis.
