This is the second issue of the IAFOR Journal of Cultural Studies and it is hoped that it will once again do justice to the breadth of that ‘discipline’ called cultural studies. The journey begins with a text on Agatha Christie and social research theory, then moves on to Sri Lankan displays of asceticism, goes on further still to film censorship as a social tool in Korea and to the revitalisation of an old Chinese/Taiwanese deity, and finally comes to rest with a poetico-sensual appraisal of the modernisation drive in the Philippines.
