The Association for Cultural Studies (ASC) has awarded the Stuart Hall Award for Lifetime Achievement in Cultural Studies 2018 to Lawrence Grossberg. The Stuart Hall Award honours an established scholar in the field of cultural studies who has made significant contributions to teaching, research, advocacy, and/or networking. The award was presented at the Crossroads in Cultural Studies conference in Shanghai in August.

Grossberg is the Morris Davis Distinguished Professor of Communication and Cultural studies at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (since 1994), and he has held additional appointments in American Studies, Anthropology and Geography. He studied at the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies (Birmingham, England) and completed his PhD at the University of Illinois in 1976. He has been honoured for his scholarship, teaching and mentorship by the International Communication Association, the (U.S.) National Communication Association and the University of North Carolina. He has been the editor of the journal Cultural Studies from 1990 through 2018.

The Stuart Hall Award was established in 2015 by the ASC and is given every two years. The first Stuart Hall Award was presented to Meaghan Morris in 2016 at the Sydney Crossroads in Cultural Studies conference.More information
