³Transcultural mappings: emerging issues in comparative, transnational and
area studies²
University of Sydney, 9-11 April 2010

The conference on "Transcultural mapping" aims to track prominent debates in
transnational, area and comparative cultural studies, as well as to consider
the methodological and ideological implications of such theoretical
reworkings.  Specific themes might include:
-      Locating culture in the glocalised third millennium: can it be done?
-      Mapping and culture: complementary or mutually exclusive terms?
-      Cultural identity, hybridity and border(zones)
-      ³Trans-², ³post² ³inter-² and academic discourse
-      Postcoloniality and postmodernity: is the discussion over?
-      The geopolitics of culture / culture and globalisation / hegemonic
-      Culture, translation and the production, trafficking and negotiation
of meanings
-      Ethics, power and the challenges of conceptualising culture
-      The South/North debate and the West/East debate
-      Diasporas and comparative cultural studies
-      Identity politics and area studies
-      Interdisciplinarity, pluridisciplinarity and transdisciplinarity:
definitions and demarcations
We invite scholars to submit 200 word abstracts for individual presentations
(20 minutes) or panel proposals (90-120 minutes) that address these issues
either theoretically or through case studies.  Abstracts, along with your
affiliation, contact information and a short biography should be sent as an
email attachment in Microsoft Word by 30 November, 2009 to
tcm.10 at usyd.edu.au.  Enquiries should also be sent to the TCM.10 email
