The International Conference on Art, Museums and Digital Cultures will bring together different scientific and creative perspectives on the crossovers between information technologies and the arts. How are museums, curators and the artists themselves responding to the opportunities, but also the risks, of the so-called “digital transformation”?

We invite scholars, independent researchers, digital media specialists, curators and artists to submit proposals for a 15-minute in-person or online presentation, focusing on one or more of the following topics:

‘Asian American Solidarities in the Age of COVID-19’
U.S. Studies Online Special Series
Series Editor: Harriet Stilley
Human experience is marked by movement and change. In cultural production we see mobility and mutability in light of progress, class mobility, and a shifting episteme. In literature and the arts these terms transform into migrations, monsters and character growth—in genres ranging from the epic to science fiction, or from the picaresque to cowboy poetry. Considering mobility and mutability, the following questions arise: How do mobility and mutability mark the evolution of life and the arts? How do we understand intermediality and dystopian futures in these terms? Why do founding myths of peoples around the world reflect exodus or displacement? How do terms mutate in the formation or new fields of study?
Call for contributions to a Journal of Scandinavian Cinema In Focus section highlighting Musical Biopics and Musical Documentaries from the Scandinavian countries
This is a call for short subject contributions (2000-3000 words) focusing on how Scandinavian film and television have presented musicians, singers, bands and orchestras in biopics and documentaries. We welcome submissions that - after a quick theoretical introduction and concise contextual background - offer discussions of topics such as:
- the film’s role within cultural memory - usually restricted to a single national market and often catering to a certain age group’s intragenerational memories
CFP: Approaching Race and Ethnicity in Nordic Film Culture
In 2017, the head of the Swedish Film Institute (SFI), Anna Serner, highlighted the distinct lack of ethnic diversity in Swedish film culture and signalled ambitions to ‘broaden representation, both behind and in front of the cameras’ (2017: 4). Echoing these sentiments, the Danish Film Institute (DFI) and the Norwegian Ministry of Culture (NFI) have outlined targets for ‘increasing cultural diversity and reaching new audiences’ (NFI 2018). These statements reflect the Nordic film industries’ aspiration to address the significant underrepresentation of black, Asian and minority ethnic voices in the creative sectors across the Nordic region.
Hip-hop is one of the most successful forms of global cultural production today. Since its emergence in the Bronx neighborhood of New York City, it has spread around the world and exerted a considerable impact not only on pop culture, but also on social debates around race, class, language, nationality, gender, and a range of other issues. One topic that is rarely discussed, however, is the relationship between hip-hop and the environment.

CONFERENCE POSTPONED TO SEPTEMBER 23-24 2021
Considering the recent global events, we have unfortunately decided to postpone the conference (originally scheduled for September 25-26, 2020) to a further date. The safety of our speakers, staff, and academic cohort has been the decisive argument in this matter.
We will announce a new date as soon as possible, but the most likely period is the second half of September 2021.

Dear Cultural Studies Community,
We regret to inform you that Ege University 18th Cultural Studies Symposium, which is supposed to be held in May 2021, is cancelled due to the increasing number of COVID-19 cases all over the world. We, as the Organizing Committee members, believe hosting an online event would not suit the spirit of our symposium which is especially prominent for gathering academics from all the branches of social sciences along with other disciplines in Izmir.
We hope to actualise the event in May 2022 with the expectation of a decrease in the number of COVID-19 cases and are looking forward to welcoming you with an exciting topic.
Thank you for your understanding.

The Ray Browne Conference for Popular Culture Studies
Considering Conclusions: What Do We Learn When We Unpack the Popular?
March 5th and 6th 2021
Call For Papers
Though once the study of popular texts--the everyday people and things of modern culture--was off-limits for the legitimate scholar, today a scholarly investigation of the popular is made by a diverse community of scholars, within and beyond the liberal arts, whose discoveries offer insights, answers, and contributions to the questions at the core of a variety of fields.
