The Melbern G. Glasscock Center for Humanities Research invites abstracts that address the who, what and why of culture. Who defines, produces, participates in, studies, and otherwise engages with culture? What are the patterns, processes, and diverse manifestations of human (or non-human) culture? Why are we interested in understanding culture, how does culture come to have political significance, and how might we find ways of understanding culture from different methodological and theoretical perspectives?
We encourage papers that range from detailed case studies of cultural phenomena to theoretical syntheses treating culture as a constructed concept. The Glasscock Center particularly encourages proposals that will appeal to an interdisciplinary humanities audience.
Abstracts of 500 words should be sent by 1 December 2003 to the following address:
