Conference Round-up

Many of the big cultural studies conferences have recently announced calls for papers for 2010. Here is our round-up of them.

The huge international conference Crossroads in Cultural Studies is heading to Hong Kong in July 2010. Invited speakers include Andrew Ross and Tony Bennett. The deadline for proposals is December 2009.

The next Cultural Studies Association (US) conference is in Berkeley in March 2010 with the deadline for proposals on 15 September 2009.

Also in California and (rather bizarrely) at the same time, the Society for Cinema and Media Studies 2010 conference is in Los Angeles (indeed, at the Bonaventure Hotel for that 'authentic' postmodern experience). With a conference theme of 'Celebrating 50 Years: Archiving/Screening/Mobilizing the Pasts and Futures of SCMS', the deadline for proposals is 1 September 2009.

Closer to home, the MeCCSA's 2010 conference is in London with a focus on 'Media Communication, Policy and Practice'. Among numerous invited speakers are (the seemingly much in demand) Tony Bennett, Georgina Born, Paul du Gay and Sylvia Harvey. With the conference scheduled for January 2010, the deadline for proposals is 18th September 2009.
