Overview

Contemporary debate about the public sphere has been dominated by discussion of Jürgen Habermas’s seminal study, The Structural Transformation of the Public Sphere. The contributors to this collection push forward Habermas’s agenda by reflecting on current social processes and events, such as anti-corporate protests and the emergence of the Internet. They also consider alternative perspectives posed by thinkers such as Bakhtin, Bourdieu and Honneth. Combining work by established commentators and new researchers, After Habermas brings fresh perspectives and ideas to bear on debates about the public sphere.
