Abstract

This piece of writing is an experiment in digressive and peripatetic cultural studies that follows a thought path around the city of Birmingham in England. Instead of constructing an argument it tries to perform a mode of enquiry that could be sensitive to the 'simultaneous non-synchroncity' of culture, and could craft a form of writing adequate to history's torn and crumpled state. I doesn't try to claim preferential treatment for such a practice, merely a marginal place for such a practice within cultural studies.
