Second Annual Cultural Studies Graduate Student Conference 
and Workshop at the

University of New Mexico, Albuquerque, NM, April 16-17, 
2010

Title: Networks of Power: Re-imagining the Imagined 
Community in a Globalized World

Keynote Lecture to be delivered by:  Neil Larsen 
(University of California, Davis)

Beginning with the Enlightenment the nation-state has been 
the dominant organizing principle of global societies. 
 Since then cultural production has been central to the 
imagining of the national community.  With the dawn of the 
postmodern age, however, the nation-state seems to have 
lost its dominant position.  A host of economic, social, 
and cultural processes have offered both new points of 
departure for imagining collective identities, and new 
points of contention in negotiating those identities. 
Processes of globalization, such as the emergence of 
transnational corporations and supranational 
organizations, and the intermingling of peoples and 
cultures all seem to undermine the normative power of the 
national community. In fact, the globalization of cultural 
production offers a new lens for interrogating the 
seemingly ‘national’ character of cultural texts.

We are seeking contributions that investigate the 
implications of globalization for cultural production and 
the renegotiation of power and identity that is played out 
in cultural texts, e.g. literature, film, music, 
television, as well as policies, and international 
communiqués.

Leading questions are: In what ways can one theorize 
"globalization"? How do concepts and realities of 
globalization change (in) different regions? What new 
communities are imagined through transnational cultural 
production and what new identities and power relations are 
produced, reproduced, and challenged?  How have attempts 
to reassert national hegemony in the face of these global 
changes manifested themselves in cultural texts?  How are 
the intersections of race, gender, and class de- and 
reconstructed by globalization? How have strategies of 
international warfare shifted in the face of increasingly 
porous national organizations?  How has globalization 
changed notions of citizenship with respect to 
self-determination?
Possible session topics include but are not limited to:	
•	Historicizing “Globalization”: Early Modern – Modern – 
Postmodern
•	Global Identities v. National Loyalties
•	Benedict Anderson: Imagined “Global” Communities?
•	Imagining History: Mobilizing Tradition or Seeking 
Innovation
•	Information Technologies and Globalization
•	Resisting Globalization: Revolutions and Reactions
•	The Dark Side of Globalization: Terrorism?
•	Cultural Hybridity and the Transnational Film Industry

Conference Structure: This conference/workshop will be 
comprised of the keynote address and two sessions on 
Friday, followed by two additional two sessions on 
Saturday. Central to the conference is a graduate seminar 
style workshop on Saturday. This workshop is led by the 
keynote speaker and designed to explore the issues 
presented and discussed in more detail and depth. We 
strongly invite all participants to attend this final 
event.  Presenters are requested to arrange their travel 
so that they can participate in the entire event, 
including the workshop.

Please send a 500 word abstract along with a brief 
biographical statement to [log in to unmask] by 
March 20, 2010.  Selected participants will be notified by 
March 26, 2010.  You can also visit our webpage (coming 
soon) for additional information about the conference:
