    Abstract

    Western Marxist writers have long been recognised as major contributors to debates on popular culture, from Antonio Gramsci to Raymond Williams. What is often missed in this reception is the extent to which, as political activists and adult educators, their reflection was tied to the experience of popular social movements. This chapter explores some of the dimensions of this literature and attempts to articulate one consistent reading, in which social movements articulate popular culture - both in the sense that they are shaped by it and that they contribute to developing it further.
