This paper examines the development of theory and practice at the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies (CCCS), popularly known as the Birmingham School, through the conceptual lens of the term culture. During the Centre’s  management by Richard Hoggart, Stuart Hall, and Richard Johnson there is a move from literary analysis as social analysis towards a practical theorising that enables practitioners to work with popular forms of cultural production,  before exposing the hidden narratives of individuals before a cultural product in its creation and usage. Using Ann Cullis’ 1988 text Telling Tales: A semio/graphy of Birmingham as a case study, the Centre’s different approaches to  culture are shown to be interconnected and insightful in revealing dynamics of social exclusion and gendered use of space within the very city where the Centre was operative.
