The Working Group on Globalization and Culture of the Cultural Studies Association would like to invite submissions for the 16th Annual Meeting of the Cultural Studies Association (U.S.), at to be held on May 31-June 2, 2018 at the campus of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, PA. We welcome a wide range of papers addressing the broad nexus between globalization and culture. This year we aim to constitute at least two panels:
General Call: The first is an open call for papers for a panel on Globalization and Culture broadly conceived. We invite interdisciplinary papers that explore the relationships among circuits of production and consumption, the movement of people, social inequalities and collective identities, globalizations from “above” and “below,” new/emerging media and technologies, transnationalism, and cultural industries. In addition, proposals broadly addressing any aspect of globalization and culture are most welcome.
Theme Panel: The second will focus on the conference theme of “Interventions.” We seek interdisciplinary papers that pull from philosophy, sociology, economics, political science, literature, critical pedagogy and/or cultural studies, among others.
