The Cultural Studies Association (U.S.) will hold its second annual conference at Northeastern University in Boston on May 5-9, 2004. The Cultural Studies Association provides a forum for scholars of Cultural
Studies, in all its diverse manifestations, to exchange their work and ideas across disciplinary lines and institutional locations.
The Association welcomes proposals for panels or for individual papers from all areas of Cultural Studies (including but not limited to literature, history, sociology, geography, anthropology, communications,
popular culture, cultural theory, queer studies, critical race studies, feminist studies, postcolonial studies, media and film studies, material culture studies, performance and visual arts studies).
In order to be considered, each proposal must contain a cover sheet with name(s), paper and/or panel title(s), affiliation(s), and e-mail and snail mail addresses. All proposals must be received no later than December 1,
2003. The program will be published on February 15. Paper and panel proposals should be no more than 300 words in length and should be sent to CSAconference@hotmail.com.
As part of the conference a special series of panels will be devoted to the concept of "Persona." Persona deals with the presentation of the public self and its articulation both in everyday activities and mediated
constructions. We encourage the submission of papers that address this topic. Key areas may include celebrity, leadership & display, fame, the role of recognition, sexual/gender/ethnic identity, etc. Those wanting to have their papers considered for the Persona panels, should indicate their interest by addressing their abstracts directly to P. David Marshall, via email only (below)
Registration and hotel information will be available on our web-site soon.
