Hi everyone,

Towards the end of last year the Association for Cultural Studies (the 
association behind the biennial Crossroads in Cultural Studies 
conference) held board elections and members of this list might be 
interested to know that the new President of the Association is 
Professor Meaghan Morris. On behalf of the csaa-forum I would like to 
congratulate Meaghan on this exciting result.

I will be serving as Australia/New Zealand representative and have also 
been elected Organisational Secretary for the association and it is in 
this capacity that I invite old and prospective members of ACS to renew 
membership and join the gathering momentum for this international 
network. Details on membership are at the website:


Meanwhile anyone can subscribe to the general ACS email list here:


During the term of this board we are seeking to increase the 
representativeness and scope of this association still further. If you 
would like to advertise your involvement with cultural studies to an 
international audience please forward any of the following information 
for inclusion in the ACS website and upcoming newsletter:

  -associations and networks in the field
  -units: centres and departments
  -programmes and courses
  -research projects
  -publications: new books and journals
  -job opportunities, fellowships and grants
  -problems and threats

Short articles on key issues for cultural studies today, or reports on 
the state of the cultural studies in specific world regions or 
subfields, are also welcome. Such contributions will be immensely 
important for our efforts to globally strengthen the association and 
reach new groups of scholars and activists devoted to critical and 
interdisciplinary cultural studies.

Material to the website and/or newsletter should be mailed to: 
anna.byckling at uta.fi
The deadline for newsletter issue #1 is 1 March 2005, but the website 
will be continuously updated.

I will be writing a regional report for the newsletter and welcome any 
comments or suggestions for that as well.
