> Message-ID: <449FD385.8ACF.0044.0 at scmp.mq.edu.au>
> Content-Type: text/plain; charset=US-ASCII
> Deadline for Abstracts Extended to 15 July 2006
> Key note speakers:
> Professor Ien Ang, ARC Professorial Fellow, Centre for Cultural
> Research, University of Western Sydney
> Dr Greg Noble, School of Humanities and Languages, University of
> Western Sydney
> Everyday Multiculturalism
> A two day Conference
> 28th and 29th September 2006
> Centre for Research on Social Inclusion, Macquarie University
> and the ARC Cultural Research Network
> While research on Australian multiculturalism and racism is well
> developed in Australia, qualitative research into everyday modes of
> lived multiculturalism, remains fairly limited. This two day conference
> seeks to bring together researchers exploring everyday experiences of
> cultural diversity and difference (other case studies are also
> welcomed).
> The conference will be divided into two parts:
> 1) Everyday Multiculturalism - Open theme
> Day one will be an open themed day on Everyday Multiculturalism. Papers
> in this section will engage with the quotidian dimensions of living with
> diversity. Quotidian diversity has variously been described as
> 'togetherness-in-difference' (Ang 2000), and 'inhabiting
> difference' (Hage 1998). We take the term to mean those perspectives
> on cultural diversity which recognise the embodied or inhabited nature
> of living with cultural difference. We are particularly interested in
> papers that focus on the intersections and relationships between
> cultural groups, rather than research taking a single ethnic group as a
> focus. Papers may explore the interconnections between the everyday and
> larger discourses; everyday interconnections, affinities, and
> solidarities, and everyday disjunctures, discomforts, and racisms.
> Papers may explore modes of living with and across difference in
> suburbia or regional Australia such as through food, neighbouring,
> shopping or sport, or issues such as multicultural place-sharing, and
> battles over place identity and belonging. Papers which take an embodied
> approach, such as through frameworks such as affect or Bourdieu's
> habitus are also particularly welcome.
> 2) Cronulla and the Everyday Politics of Cultural Difference in
> Suburbia
> Day two papers will present a collection of new work reflecting on the
> Cronulla riots - the causes, the riots themselves, and their
> ramifications. The Cronulla riots caught many commentators by surprise.
> Some commentators argued that the riots were a symptom of everyday
> tensions, others argued that Cronulla represents a failure of
> multiculturalism, while still others argued that it was a result of a
> decade of 'dog-whistle' politics in Australia. Racism, ethnocentrism
> and other forms of prejudice are often born out of everyday encounters
> with difference intertwined with national and global politics and
> discourses. The aim of this day will be to offer an opportunity to
> scholars to present works-in-progress around the Cronulla issue.
> We invite proposals from any discipline that engage with any aspect of
> 'everyday multiculturalism' with a special focus on those employing
> grounded methodologies such as fieldwork, interviews, focus groups and
> ethnographic participant observation.
> Registration details, keynotes, and conference info will be announced
> shortly.
