Culture After Postmodern Culture

To celebrate 20 years of publication, the journal Postmodern Culture is holding a conference, "Culture After Postmodern Culture," at UC Irvine October 9, 2010. The conference asks what culture means today and examines ways it is challenged by new discourses on ecology, the animal, sexuality, materialism, anthropology, the trans-state, and new media, among others. It also asks how methods for investigating culture have changed over the last two decades. The conference is expected to lead to a special issue in the journal.

Keynotes: Alexander Garcia Düttmann and Manuel de Landa

Other confirmed speakers include Rei Terada, Arkady Plotnitsky, and Jan Mieszkowski.
