Crossroads in Cultural Studies Conference, Paris, 2-6 July 2012


We are pleased to announce that the 9th International Conference
Crossroads in Cultural Studies will be held in Paris, France, from July
2nd to 6th, 2012, hosted by Sorbonne Nouvelle University and UNESCO.
The city of Paris has a long and complex history as a crossroad between
cultures and peoples. Paris has played an important role in the
development and circulation of the works of authors and thinkers that
have shaped the postcolonial imagination in a significant way. Drawing
on their tradition of comprehensive and critical thought, the organizers
seek contributions in the form of papers and panels that will continue
to examine the intersection between culture, power and knowledge from
within the framework of Cultural Studies.
The conference will also be hosted by UNESCO, the international
organization that has always championed cultural diversity and
difference. Given the long association between Cultural Studies research
and UNESCO, this conference should be an occasion for Cultural Studies
to look back on its own evolution as well as explore new scholarly insights.
12 World-class Keynote Speakers from all over the world will
address the conference at keynote and plenary sessions. Among them,
Sarah Ahmed, Marie-Hélène Bourcier, Jeremy Gilbert, Achille Mbembe,
Walter Mignolo, Bobby Noble, Phaedra Pezzullo, Françoise Vergès. With
the participation of Stuart Hall and Jacques Rancière (to be confirmed).
State of the art conference topics. All topics relevant to
Cultural Studies, especially new and innovative areas of research are
welcome.
Submit your proposal now! The call for papers and organized panel
proposals is now open. Check the submission guidelines and submit before
September 30, 2011.
ACS Assistance Scheme for Crossroads 2012. The Association for
Cultural Studies will offer a small number of grants to assist
participants from ACS under-represented regions with travel
accommodation or registration expenses.
Attractive and convenient accommodation in the heart of the city
of Paris and close to the conference venues. Cheaper campus
accommodation will also be available close at hand at the International
Paris University Campus.
