The title of this issue of Cultural Studies Review salutes our excellent special section, ‘Dressing the Body’ (guest edited by Prudence Black and Rosie Findlay), and draws attention to the important and powerful essays in the section ‘Stuart Hall: In Memoriam’ (guest edited by Catherine Driscoll and Gerard Goggin). The issue also includes Ben Highmore’s exemplary essay on feelings and things; Stefan Laser’s wonderful ‘case study’ that charts the mis-matches between the legislative regulation of of e-waste management and the actual practices of the ‘informal sector’ in India; Dinesh Joseph Wadiwel’s exploration of the conjunctures of resistance, economy and production in the cultures of fish ‘processing’; an essay from Annee Lawrence that brings to our attention the work of three key novelists who ‘represent a line of flight towards a literary imaginary in Australian writing that is contemporary, locally grounded, but also regionally and globally entangled’; and a selection of engaging book reviews.
