Call For Papers

The International Academic Forum in conjunction with its global partners, including the Cultural Studies Association of Australasia, is proud to announce the Third Asian Conference on Cultural Studies, to be held from May 24-26 2013, at the Ramada Osaka, Osaka, Japan.

Conference Theme: Intersecting Belongings: Cultural Conviviality and Cosmopolitan Futures

Contemporary challenges and contexts of the local, regional, national and global raise urgent questions about cultural conviviality and cosmopolitan futures across the world. These are times when trans-cultural, trans-national and multicultural belonging are particularly being tested through environmental catastrophe, economic volatility, parochialism, fundamentalism, notions of cosmopolitan and multicultural exhaustion, and war. A key challenge lies in the paradox of culture, in which belonging has become a fundamental question of preservation, atavism, tradition and survival as well as hybridity, transgression, possibility and transformation. The aim of this conference theme is to respond to this paradoxical challenge by opening up discussion, critical reflection and analysis about emerging social and cultural identities that are formed at the intersection of multiple and multi-sited belongings.

ACCS 2013 encourages participants from a range of inter/disciplinary and theoretical perspectives, including but not limited to:

Cultural Studies
Sociology
Critical Race Theory
Social Criticism
Queer Theory
Gender studies / Feminist Theory
Black Feminism
Media Studies
Visual Culture

Cultural History
Political Theory
Orientalism
Critical Legal Studies

The conference theme is Intersecting Belongings: Cultural Conviviality and Cosmopolitan Futures and the organizers encourage submissions that approach this theme from a variety of perspectives. This theme can be explored in any way, but the following sub-themes have been suggested by the conference chair, and may provide some inspiration, as well as offer some direction to researchers.
