"Clash and Convergence: Explorations of Culture in an Age of Uncertainty"
The Ray Browne Conference on Cultural and Critical Studies
February 21 - 23, 2014
Bowling Green State University
Bowling Green, Ohio
Increasingly, scholars of cultural studies and allied fields must view their study in the context of clashes and convergences, facilitated by global neoliberal realities. This is reflected in the evolving forms popular culture productions are taking today, as well as the institutional forms which our academic spaces take. As scholar-activists, we must envision new ways of (re-)framing our work, and build alliances across disciplines, structural boundaries, and other barriers.
The formation of the School of Cultural and Critical Studies in 2012 has given us occasion to reconsider the ways in which these experiences play out in practice, as well as the ways in which we might work together to create more effective dialogues. It is in this spirit that The Culture Club: Cultural Studies Scholars Association and the Popular Culture Scholars Association, in cooperation with the School of Cultural and Critical Studies at Bowling Green State University, have brought together their Battleground States and Ray Browne Conferences in order to jointly host the Ray Browne Conference on Cultural and Critical Studies.
