Cultural Studies Association Conference Call for Papers

The Cultural Studies Association (U.S.) will hold its second annual
conference at Northeastern University in Boston on May 5-9, 2004. The
Cultural Studies Association provides a forum for scholars of Cultural
Studies, in all its diverse manifestations, to exchange their work and
ideas across disciplinary lines and institutional locations.

The Association welcomes proposals for panels or for individual papers from

history, sociology, geography, anthropology, communications, popular
culture, cultural theory, queer studies, critical race studies, feminist
studies, postcolonial studies, media and film studies, material culture
studies,  performance and visual arts studies).

In order to be considered, each proposal must contain a cover sheet with
name(s), paper and/or panel title(s), affiliation(s), and e-mail and snail
mail addresses.  All proposals must be received no later than December 1,
2003.  The program will be published on February 15.  Paper and panel

As part of the conference a special series of panels will be devoted to the
concept of  Persona.  Persona deals with the presentation of the public
self and its articulation both in everyday activities and mediated
constructions. We encourage the submission of papers that address this
topic.  Key areas may include celebrity, leadership & display, fame, the
role of recognition, sexual/gender/ethnic identity, etc.  Those wanting to
have their papers considered for the Persona panels, should indicate their
interest by addressing their abstracts directly to P. David Marshall,
Chair, Department of Communication Studies, Northeastern University via
email only: [log in to unmask]

Registration and hotel information will be available on our web-site soon.
