REVISED ANNOUCEMENT: Fifth International Crossroads in Cultural Studies Conference to held at the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign. CALL FOR PAPERS: Feb. 1, 2004. Conference: June 25-28, 2004.
The mission of the Crossroads conference is to provide an open forum for all topics that interest the diverse international cultural studies community; generate critical debate. We encourage international participation from different countries, disciplines and cultural backgrounds, as well as from a wide range of research areas.
We are living in a time of global uncertainty. Cultural studies scholars have a moral obligation to undo the official pedagogies that circulate in the world. We must seek critical methodologies that protest, resist and help us represent and imagine radically free utopian spaces.
The conference committee has established 12 Program Areas that engage with the overall theme of the conference in different and related ways, that of connecting critical cultural analyses to progressive political action and social justice in an age of violence and global uncertainty. Critical Pedagogy & Cultural Studis; The Political & Cultural Studies Race, Identity, & Representation; Performative Cultural Studies; Cultural Studies/Critical Methodologies; Neo-liberalism, Governmentality, & Cultural Studies; Sport & Cultural Studies; Asian/Asian-American Cultural Studies; Media Studies; Globalization, Transnationalism, and Cultural Studies; Latina/o Studies; "Open" Topics.
