Exclusivity: Boundaries of Difference

To celebrate the launch of volume 19 of Limina: A Journal of Historical and Cultural Studies, the Collective is pleased to announce...

The 8th Annual Limina Conference will be held on Friday June 14, 2013 at the University of Western Australia, Perth.

This conference will explore notions of exclusivity with Professor Jane Lydon, Future Fellow at the University of Western Australia, as keynote speaker. We especially encourage submissions that incorporate the notion with reference to concepts of 'community'. For example, the concept of 'community' is commonly talked about in celebratory terms, but always necessitates an Other. The conference aims to foster a supportive environment in which current post-graduates and early career researchers can present their own research whilst investigating the complexities of exclusion.

We welcome papers from the disciplines of historical and cultural studies that discuss ideas of exclusivity, for example, but not limited to change and continuity in:

Race/ethic/national identity
Social classes/boundaries
Popular culture
Cyber culture
Genre and theoretical boundaries

We welcome individual and panel session submissions of three papers. Each presenter will have 20 minutes presentation and 10 minutes discussion time.

All submissions should include a title, biography and abstract of no more than 250 words in MS Word or RTF Format. Please submit abstracts to

The final submission date for abstracts is April 10, 2013.
