The Cultural Studies and Literature Division is inviting proposals for complete panels for the CSA (US) Annual Conference, which will be held at Columbia College, Chicago, IL March 24-26, 2011. We welcome all panels that take the conference topic ("New Directions in Cultural Studies") as an occasion to generate innovative analyses of the methodological and theoretical relationship between cultural and literary studies. In particular, we are interested in panels that interrogate the relationship between cultural and literary studies as it presents itself in the current social, economic, political, intellectual and disciplinary climate, as well as in relation to new information/communication technologies and infrastructures.

or displace issues of war and wartime? How can we think about both film and war in a global context?
What categories of social cohesion or contestation have emerged from the way cinema has staged
