Birmingham cultural studies
This paper puts together and arranges the existing empirical evidence on opinions and attitudes of faculty members about the introduction in their institutions of the logic, principles and tools of quality management. The approach used was the meta-research, which involves compilation of the relevant literature and systematization of its topics. These have been exposed into three thematic lines: the notions of quality accepted by faculty members, their perception of the achievements of quality management, and their assessment of the different evaluation methods associated with systems of quality assurance.

Father of cultural studies
Drawing on a variety of influences (feminism, structuralism, Marxism (especially the work of Louis Althusser and Antonio Gramsci), sociology, critical race theory, and poststructuralism), for several decades the center pioneered a variety of approaches to the study of culture such as ideological analysis, in the analysis of working-class cultures and subcultures, in the role of media audiences, in feminist cultural research, in the hegemonic struggles of state politics, and in the place of the concept of race in social and cultural processes. 
Books published by the center include Off-Centre: Feminism and Cultural Studies, Resistance through Rituals, The Empire Strikes Back, or Border Patrols: Policing the Boundaries of Heterosexuality.   The history of this development can be found in the series of articles published by the same center between 1973 and 1988.
