Crossroads in Cultural Studies 2012
Hosted by Sorbonne Nouvelle University
2nd call for papers - Updated deadline: November 30th, 2011
We are pleased to announce that the 9th International Conference Crossroads in Cultural Studies will be held in Paris, France, from July 2nd to 6th, 2012, hosted by Sorbonne Nouvelle University.
The conference will also be hosted by UNESCO, the international organization that has always championed cultural diversity and difference. Given the long association between Cultural Studies research and UNESCO, this conference should be an occasion for Cultural Studies to look back on its own evolution as well as explore new scholarly insights. We believe UNESCO will also offer an exceptional platform to discuss important current issues and contribute to the visibility of Cultural Studies in France and Europe.
Since its inception in 1996 in Tampere, Finland, the Crossroads in Cultural Studies Conference has played an important role in the creation of a global discussion about Cultural Studies. It has become a major international conference where scholars from all five continents gather regularly to exchange research, views and insights. Organized by the Association for Cultural Studies (ACS), the Crossroads Conference is held every other year in different parts of the world. Previous conferences have taken place in Birmingham (United Kingdom), Urbana-Champaign (USA), Istanbul (Turkey), Kingston (Jamaica), and Hong Kong (China).
