While one of the defining axioms of cultural studies is the death of the author, the authors of cultural studies seem to exempt themselves from the full effect of this theory, much the way a queen might be exempted from her own decrees. The theory death of the author seems to apply to other people's authors. If we are to understand, following Bourdieu, that the value of a work of art is determined by the same system of discriminations-class-based dispositions or tastes-that determines the differential value of styles of furniture or dresses or table manners, then why not apply this to Bourdieu's Distinction: A Social Critique of the Judgment of Taste?
The present crisis of cultural studies results from the seeming autonomy of the frames of interpretation from what they are to interpret; we have less objects of study than what Stanley Fish calls "interpretive communities". What is to be interpreted is by no means secure, nor are the objects of interpretation necessarily of any determining significance. This is a somewhat awkward, even anxious situation. But it is not fundamentally different from the methodological approach of much modernist and contemporary art, where forms of interpretation constitute the subject.
38 WHAT'S ART GOT TO DOW I T HIT? The vehemence of the attacks on cultural and new historical studies has left too little room for a critique of the ways in which these approaches continue to perpetuate a deterministic or professional rather than rhetorical or poetic approach to its subjects.
