Hi list,

If you have exciting news to share with the rest of the cultural  
studies world, I'm collecting contributions for the ACS newsletter  
again - see below for details. It was great to have so much  
Australasian content in the previous issue, so let's keep it up.

Is anyone back from Crossroads yet? Any reflections to share?

It has just been announced that the 2008 conference will be organized  
by the Initiative in Cultural Studies at the University of the West  
Indies in Mona, Jamaica. It should be about the same time, or perhaps  
slightly earlier in July.
