Stuart Hall (3 February 1932 ? 10 February 2014) was a cultural theorist and sociologist who has lived and worked in the United Kingdom since 1951.
Jeremy Gilbert reflects on the life and work of Stuart Hall, who died Monday aged 82.
Stuart Hall has died. The enormity of the loss cannot be exaggerated. There is little point trying to measure Hall?s importance against other significant figures: he himself would have abhorred the macho individualism of such a gesture. But it has been a long time since the intellectual Left in the UK has experienced such a loss, or one more keenly feared by those who may have anticipated it. I am not going to repeat here much of the information contained in the superb obituary penned by my colleagues, Bill Schwarz and David Morley, and I encourage readers to refer there first if they are unfamiliar with the basic narrative of Hall?s life and career.
