>CULTURAL STUDIES NOW: an international conference
>
>Docklands Campus, University of East London, UK, 19-22 July 2007
>
>Plenary speakers will include Ien Ang, Rosi Braidotti, Kuan-Hsing Chen,
>Judith Halberstam, Stuart Hall, Dick Hebdige, Doreen Massey.
>
>Cultural Studies, as the paradigmatic interdisciplinary project, has always
>been defined by its relationships to proximate sets of ideas, practices and
>institutions. As Cultural Studies has grown and matured, its borders have
>multiplied. Cultural Studies has affected and been affected by contiguous
>disciplines, academic and non-academic institutions, political movements and
>projects, and creative practices of many kinds.
>
>The question now is: has Cultural Studies been expanded, relocated and
>disseminated to the point where it no longer has a coherent identity? Is
>there a future for Cultural Studies as such? This major international
>conference will consider these issues by addressing a number of connected
>topics:
>
>…Cultural Studies and politics: Cultural Studies was once closely
>allied with socialism, feminism and antiracism. Is this still the case? Has
>Cultural Studies lost its political edge? Has it moved to the right? Or is it
>finding a home in the latest new social movements?
>
>…Cultural Studies and its disciplinary neighbours: history,
>literature, sociology, philosophy, geography, visual culture, psychoanalysis,
>political science, postcolonial theory, economics, environmental studies,
>science and technology studies; film and media studies, queer studies and
>popular music studies are among the disciplines and fields that have
>contributed to and drawn on Cultural Studies. Has Cultural Studies been a
>good neighbour?
>
>…Cultural Studies in the public sphere: what has been the influence
>of Cultural Studies outside the academy? How has the corporate universe made
>use of it? Has the selective uptake of Cultural Studies in a range of
>institutional contexts, including government, been positive in its effects?
>
>
>…Cultural Studies and creative practice: what are the actual and
>potential relationships between Cultural Studies and other forms of creative
>practice? What has been the impact of Cultural Studies on cultural practices
>and vice versa? How has this been played out?
>
>…Cultural Studies and national contexts: does Cultural Studies
>occupy different institutional and intellectual spaces in different national,
>international, and global contexts? Is there a cosmopolitan Cultural Studies
>or have local conversations predominated? Is there any continued relevance
>for the Birmingham CCCS models?
>
>Today, when Cultural Studies risks responding to these challenges by
>collapsing into theoretical obscurantism or technocratic ineffectuality, we
>at the University of East London believe that there is a place for a Cultural
>Studies which is politically committed and relentlessly experimental in its
>intellectual, institutional and creative practices.
>
>To this end, we invite contributions which address these topological and
>methodological questions directly or which present examples of current work
>in the field. We welcome proposals for papers and presentations engaging with
>the full range of current themes and issues in contemporary cultural studies,
>cultural theory and cultural production.
>
>Panels will normally consist of three twenty-minute presentations. Abstracts
>(max 200 words) and biographical notes (max 150 words) for individual papers
>and/or suggestions for panels or alternative formats to be sent by 1st

>Established in 1985 as the first ever Department of Cultural Studies in the
>UK and twice awarded the high rating of 5 in the British Research Assessment
>Exercise, the University of East London is a widely-recognised centre for
>research and teaching in the Cultural Studies field. Now part of the School
>of Social Sciences, Media and Cultural Studies, the subject area is located

>conference will take place. Accommodation will be available on campus and in
>hotels in Canary Wharf and Central London. The campus is sited within easy
