Abstract:Over the last three decades attitudes toward cultural studies in Germany have developed in contact and conflict with different disciplines like ethnology; anthropology; sociology and sociology of culture ; literary studies and last but not least Kulturwissenschaft(en). On the one hand there is a strong interest in how cultural studies views and analyzes popular culture; media culture and the everyday. On the other hand borderlines between humanities and social science remain; these lead to criticism of and conflict with cultural studies and its achievements.

In my paper I will discuss some of the problems concerning the perception/reception of cultural studies among practitioners of Kulturwissenschaft(en) and sociology and I will draw on the role of cultural studies in thematizing cultural change and conflicts; and its ability to do so in a way that points out that culture and politics matter.
