Conference Announcement and First Call for Papers for
Crossroads 2006 in Istanbul

We are pleased to announce that the Sixth International Crossroads in Cultural Studies Conference, the official meeting of
The Association for Cultural Studies, will be held in Istanbul, sponsored by Istanbul Bilgi University, 20-23 July 2006.

For millennia Istanbul has been a natural crossroads at which radically different types of cultural experience have found a
space to coexist and interact. Correspondingly, rather than having a specific theme, Crossroads 2006 will aspire to construct
an intellectual space for the international cultural studies community to meet, to give voice to different cultural
orientations and researches, and to motivate each other for further reflection.

We encourage scholars from all countries and disciplines to contribute to the shaping of the conference program with
individual session proposals extending over a wide range of topics and addressing not only issues that concern the practice
of cultural studies, but also the current conditions, local, regional and global, of both aggression and domination, and
cooperation and resistance. We also encourage individual paper submissions on any topic within the broad purview of cultural

Detailed information concerning participation, conference structure, travel and accommodations will be available from August
1, 2005 on the official website of the conference: and on the website of The Association for Cultural
Studies: We will also be announcing a broad representative line-up of keynote speakers and invite
