This chapter opens with Stuart Hall's "Signification, Representation, Ideology" essay, originally published in 1985. This is one of his most significant contributions to his body of work and was one of the earliest pieces to reach a broad readership of US communication scholars. Stuart Hall's work lives on in a new generation of scholars, including ourselves, who continue to be moved by his brilliant, profound, and deeply caring contributions to understanding media environments. Hall was also committed to circulating his ideas in forms most accessible to undergraduate students, as demonstrated by his televised Open University lectures and the series of educational documentaries he made with Sut Jhally at the Media Education Foundation. Through the collection of reminisces and reviews runs a thread of indebtedness to, respect for, and ongoing energy for Hall's formidable intellectual contribution to media and cultural studies, popular intellectual life, and the political and policy sphere over four decades.
