ANGLES 2: ANOTHER INTERDISCIPLINARY POSTGRADUATE CONFERENCE ON CULTURAL HISTORY
Birkbeck, University of London
Saturday 19 June 2010
CALL FOR PAPERS - PLEASE DISTRIBUTE WIDELY
Following the success of the first Angles conference in 2009, we are returning in 2010 with another one-day event and the launch of an online network for research students working in the field of cultural history.
As part of the growing field of the history of media, this workshop will explore how the production and reception of the written word shapes and is shaped by particular places and their inhabitants.
The workshop will create intellectually coherent panels and discussion groups so that scholars from different fields can engage productively around a central theme or question. Participants will be asked to pre-circulate their papers so that each session can be devoted to an informed discussion of the subject.
Speakers and discussants will include Lisa Gitelman (NYU), Robert Gross (Univ. of Connecticut), John Kelly (Univ. of Chicago), Jonathan Rose (Drew Univ.), and Barbara Sicherman (Trinity College).
Journal Culture, Language and Representation seeks contributions for volume 9 to be published in May 2011.
The issue will be devoted to:
The interface between politics and discursive practices.
The Cultural Studies Student Organizing Committee (SOC) at George Mason University invites paper proposals for our 4th annual Cultural Studies Graduate Conference. The Conference will take place on Saturday, September 25th at George Mason University in Fairfax, Virginia.
Call for Papers
"Utopia," according to Frederic Jameson, "has always been a political issue, an unusual destiny for a literary form." Human history has had no shortage of fantasies of perfect worlds, or of dystopian visions that form their obverse. Even today, when the notion of "progress" is subject to fraught debate, utopian hopes and dystopian warnings can be found in discourses ranging from advertising to religion, film to cable news.
The (Re)-Constructing Multiculturalism conference, organised and led by postgraduate students, aims to attract doctoral researchers from across a diverse range of disciplines including Anthropology, Architecture, Cultural Studies, English, History, Journalism, Modern Languages, Music, Philosophy, City and Regional Planning, Politics, Religious Studies, Sociology and Welsh. It invites researchers to consider how the concept of multiculturalism – and its re-construction – may influence their own work.
