The Conference Organizers invite paper and panel proposals that deal

institutions, etc.--in relation to social, aesthetic, historical,
economic, political, or semiotic conditions and issues.  Papers may be
theoretical, empirical, and/or interpretive in their approach, and may
come out of any discipline or several disciplines.

Those wishing to propose a paper presentation or to propose a panel

The Cultural Studies Association will serve as the professional
organization for writers and teachers engaged in the critical analysis
of culture.  It will hold an annual conference and maintain a
membership/mailing list for the purpose of creating a community of
scholars with a shared interest in Cultural Studies. We expect that the
organization and its conference will reflect broadly the various strands
of cultural studies today.  We especially welcome people interested in
building the new organization.
