Sample text

Hall explained his usage of the term in an interview with Lawrence Grossberg, the leading North American interpreter of British cultural studies, in 1986: I always use the word ‘articulation’, though I don’t know whether the meaning I attribute to it is perfectly understood. In England, the term has a nice double meaning because ‘articulate’ means to utter, to speak forth, to be articulate. It 34 Theoretical politics carries that sense of language-ing, of expressing, etc. But we also speak of an ‘articulated’ lorry (truck): a lorry where the front (cab) and back (trailer) can, but need not necessarily, be connected to one another….

Third, Hall repudiated any suggestion that his position conceded total hegemony to Thatcherism. He always saw it as an unstable project, in spite of its evident success at the time. Hall’s defence can be substantiated further if one refers back to the remarkably prescient Policing the Crisis (1978), perhaps the most impressive achievement of the Birmingham Centre during its heyday. In the early 1970s, Hall and his co-researchers became interested in the moral panic around ‘mugging’ and its connotations of an alien, black threat to law and order on the city streets of Britain.

14 But, in sum, their critique rested on the claim that Hall had exaggerated the unity and strength of Thatcherism whilst undervaluing its weaknesses and sources of resistance to it. Hall replied by arguing that, first, Jessop et al. had treated his thesis at a level of generalised abstraction that he had never intended, hence enabling themselves to challenge the interpretation of ideology as a totalising analysis. He claimed that his intention was much narrower and more specific. And, with Gramsci, he would never deny ‘the decisive nucleus of economic activity’ (1988a:156).
