                                  DIGGING CHTHONIC CULTURE
                        AN ARCHAEOLOGY OF THE UNDERGROUND ca. 1997
                                         FEBRUARY 14-16, 1997
                      The University of British Columbia, Vancover, B.C.
The purpose of this conference is to fully explore the state of
underground culture circa 1997, in this age of an omnivorous
mainstream/dominant culture.  What is the underground? Where is the
underground?  What are its defining characteristics? How does it stand
in relation to the dominant culture?  How/why is the underground being
co-opted? Is there continued hope for a popularly-derived, non-vertical/
hierarchical underground culture? These are some of the questions that
this conference will address in all realms pertaining to culture as we
know it: in film, popular music, theatre, the visual arts, performance
art, literature, comics, video, 'zines, etc.  In addition to our academic
panels we also hope to host a number of panels which will concern themselves
with the underground's practical issues, and to organize various showcases of
authentic/vital underground culture.
Those interested in participating should submit a one-page (250 word)
proposal to :
