Angie Sandhu examines the relation between intellectuals and society through political theory and a consideration of contemporary debates in both Britain and the US. She sets out a new argument that calls for intellectuals to address their own elite locations in society by challenging notions of intellectual difference and autonomy.
ANGIE SANDHU is a Research Associate in the Department of English and Cultural Studies at Sheffield Hallam University, UK.
