Call for Papers
The Cultural Studies Association will hold its 11th annual international conference this year in Chicago at Columbia College. For this year, the theme encourages participants to submit work that, reflect(s) on the nature, limits, and merits of interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary practices across the humanities, social sciences, and the arts. This theme refers to the historic role of cultural studies as a field that intervenes in social and intellectual modes of disciplinarity from a variety of critical locations. The conference aims to attract work that meets those challenges by willfully reorganizing and redistributing the sensibilities and knowledges of disciplinary and interdisciplinary formations.
In particular, the Pedagogy Division is soliciting papers for two division sessions that focus specifically on issues surrounding education, pedagogy, and cultural studies broadly defined. Individual papers or pre-constituted panels that focus on how art-based and/or cultural studies-informed practices are resisting neoliberal reforms are strongly encouraged. We are specifically interested to see how scholars/activists/teachers/community organizations/citizens are using various institutions within civil society to address/redress current policies.
Other papers or pre-constituted panels will certainly also be considered.
Questions, concerns, and proposals should be submitted directly to Mark Stern (firstname.lastname@example.org) no later than February 1, 2013.
Please feel free to circulate this call widely.
