Our first conference addresses a crisis created by the continuing
fractures of sociality expressed either as internal estrangement or as
hostility to those perceived as the resident stranger. This first annual
Congress of the newly instituted AHRB Centre for Cultural Analysis,
Theory and History aims to incite new debates around the interrelated
aspects of both the political and philosophical theories of class and
hospitality and their current translations to cultural practices,
analyses and performance.
Plenary Speakers: Paul Gilroy (Yale University), Tahar Ben Jelloun,
Cora Kaplan (university of Southampton), Abdelkébir Khatibi
(University Mohammed v-souissi), Martha Rosler (Mason Gross
School of the Arts, Rutgers University).
Special Panel Speakers: Rachel Bowlby (University of York), Assia
Djebar ( Louisiana State University), Aritha van Herk (University of
Calgary), Saskia Sassen (London School of Economics/University
of Chicago), Carolyn Steedman (University of Warwick).
