***********************************************************************
                   CROSSROADS IN CULTURAL STUDIES
                     An International Conference
                   July 1-4, 1996, Tampere, Finland
***********************************************************************
 
FIRST ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS
 
Cultural studies is not a one-way street between the centre and peripheries.
Rather, it is a crossroads, a meeting point in between different centres,
disciplines and intellectual movements. People in many countries and with
different backgrounds have worked their way to the crossroads independently.
They have made contacts, exchanged views and gained inspiration from each other
in pursuing their goals.
 
The vitality of cultural studies depends on a continuous traffic through this
crossroads. Therefore the conference organizers invite people with different
geographical, disciplinary and theoretical backgrounds together to share their
ideas. We encourage international participation from a wide range of research
areas.
 
The conference is organized by the Department of Sociology and Social
Psychology, University of Tampere, and Network Cultural Studies. The organizing
committee represents several universities and disciplines.

CALL FOR PAPERS AND COORDINATORS
 
As you will see below, many people have already volunteered to organize
sessions on a wide variety of topics, but there is still the opportunity to add
to the list. So please complete the preliminary abstract form if you would like
to give a paper or offer to organize a session. There will also be a book
exhibition, and publishers are requested to contact the organizers.
 
The second announcement and invitation programme, including more information
about the conference, its side-events, and a registration form will be
available in September. At this stage we assume that the conference fee -
including lunch and coffee - will be about 1000 FIM ($210) and hotel
accommodation double $70 and single $60 (with breakfast included).
 
The Conference will be held in Tampere Hall that is the largest congress and
concert centre in the Scandinavia. Opposite to the University of Tampere,
Tampere Hall is within easy walking distance from the centre of the city and
its many services. The unique architecture clearly reflects the activities for
which the building was built: conferences, exhibitions, concerts and ballet.
