Contexts, Fields, Positions: Situating Cultural Research
Postgraduate Conference, University of East London (UK)
25-26 May 2006

This conference will provide an opportunity to consider how research
contexts shape our study of culture. In the humanities and social sciences
researchers think about and deploy the concept of culture in different ways,

their broadest sense, including cultural, institutional and disciplinary
locations, theoretical positions and methodologies. How do the conditions
created and maintained within these contexts determine or shape our object
of study?

Questions central to this conference are:
