2022 is the 30th Anniversary of the Cultural Studies Association of Australasia (CSAA)—an important milestone for reflecting on and celebrating cultural studies research, teaching and scholarship in the region.
RMIT University’s School of Media & Communication is proud to announce it will be hosting the CSAA 30th Anniversary Conference in Melbourne (1 – 3 December).
CSAA will be celebrating this milestone at its 2022 conference in Melbourne, hosted by RMIT University, with keynotes, historical and forward-planning roundtables, and plenty of opportunities to present, network, engage, socialise and recognise the important role of cultural studies in the community.
CSAA2022 has three themes:
- Everyday Icons
- Pasts and Futures
- National Interests
The conference will host papers and panels in any of these three themes as well as general cultural studies topics.
As part of the anniversary celebrations, CSAA 2022 is hosting several Q&A-style plenary roundtables with key cultural studies and community participants, including:
(1) Gough Whitlam 50th Anniversary (An Everyday Icon)
(2) Futures of Academic Publishing
(3) Histories and Trajectories of Cultural Studies
Call for papers
The organising committee are now calling for proposals for papers and panels (of 3-4 presentations)–the portal will remain open until Friday 5 August (extended).
For more information on the conference, the themes and for proposal submissions, please see the conference site at: https://www.CSAA2022.net and the attached flyer.
Congress of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences
This year, CSAA will be participating in the first annual Congress of HASS (CHASS), bringing 21 Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences conferences to Melbourne during the same fortnight. To accommodate the anticipated overlaps between conferences, CSAA will be offering day-rate and event registrations so delegates attending multiple conferences are not financially burdened and can manage the exciting schedule. More information about the Congress can be found at: https://www.chass.org.au/content.aspx?page_id=22&club_id=239946&module_id=502484
On behalf of the organising committee: Rob Cover (chair), Anna Hickey-Moody, Mark Gibson and Jay Daniel Thompson.
