Since its inception in 1996 in Tampere, Finland, the Crossroads in Cultural
Studies Conference has filled a significant gap in the global academic
community. It is now a key international conference in cultural studies
where scholars from all five continents get together regularly to exchange
research outputs, critical viewpoints and scholarly insights. Organized by
the Association for Cultural Studies (ACS), this biannual conference has
been previously held in Birmingham in UK, Illinois in USA, Istanbul in
Turkey and Kingston in Jamaica.
