This paper provides a critical assessment of the working practices of the Birmingham Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies (BCCCS), the research unit established by Richard Hoggart in 1964 and widely seen as the institutional origin of what has become the
 global field of cultural studies. Drawing on an archive of Centre material set up to mark the 50th anniversary of its establishment, the paper will explore how a new generation of Leftist thinkers in Britain attempted to engage with a society increasingly
 dominated by affluence, new forms of mass media and the cultures of consumption. The Centre's remarkable productivity and place at the forefront of the field has led to an element of nostalgia and myth-making around the so-called 'Birmingham School', something
 that remains apparent more than a decade after its controversial closure. <a href="http://cccs.uq.edu.au/connell-seminar" target="_blank">

Thursday 23 October, 4:00 - 5:00pm, CCCS&nbsp;Seminar Room</p>
<p>Conducted six months before Stuart Hall's death in February 2014, this film is of a conversation that took place between Hall and Kieran Connell as part of a project to mark the 50th anniversary of the BCCCS. Aware that his ill-health would render him unable
 to physically address the conference, this film is the product of Hall's commitment to engaging with the issues raised by the conference and the archive.</p>
