Stuart Hall was born in February 1932 in Kingston, Jamaica. He is a cultural theorist and sociologist who has lived and worked in the UK since 1951. He was one of the founding figures of the school of thought that is now known as British Cultural Studies.

He was President of the British Sociological Association 1995-1997 and joined the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies at Birmingham University in 1964. While at the Centre, Hall is credited with playing a role in expanding the scope of cultural studies to deal with race and gender, and with helping to incorporate new ideas derived from the work of French theorists. He left the centre in 1979 to become a professor of sociology at the Open University until 1997 and is now a Professor Emeritus.
