For the first time in its history, Crossroads in Cultural Studies is coming to the southern hemisphere. The 11th Association for Cultural Studies “Crossroads in Cultural Studies” conference will be held in Sydney, Australia, from the 14-17 December, 2016. Hosted by the University of Sydney and Western Sydney University, Crossroads 2016 will bring scholars together in the beautiful summertime setting of Sydney University to engage with the past, present and future of cultural studies scholarship.
The Crossroads in Cultural Studies Conference has played an important role in the creation of a global discussion of Cultural Studies. It has become a major international conference where scholars from all five continents gather regularly to exchange research, views, and insights. Organized by the Association for Cultural Studies (ACS), the Crossroads conference is held every other year in different parts of the world. Previous conferences have taken place in Birmingham (United Kingdom), Urbana-Champaign (USA), Istanbul (Turkey), Kingston (Jamaica), Hong Kong (China), Paris (France), and Tampere (Finland).
