Doing Cultural Studies: Interrogating ‘Practice’

A one-day postgraduate and early career researcher symposium, supported by the Cultural Studies Association of Australasia

Tuesday 3 December 2013

Swinburne University of Technology

Hawthorn campus, Melbourne, Australia

This Intermezzo Symposium provides emerging cultural studies scholars a forum to interrogate and unpack the idea of ‘practice’ in its many guises. Through a series of presentations, workshops, and roundtable discussions, participants will discuss the emergence of practice theory over the past decade, their own research practice and methodologies, and what it means to ‘practice’ or ‘do’ cultural studies.

Whether interested in presenting their own work, or simply coming along to find out about emerging research and meet fellow scholars, we welcome attendees from diverse research backgrounds.

We invite postgraduate students and early career researchers to submit proposals for presentations around the conference theme. Possible approaches include (but are not limited to):

  *   Everyday practices
  *   Sexual practices
  *   Media practices
  *   Social practices
  *   Scholarly practices
  *   Cultural practices
  *   Fan practices
  *   Labour practices

Interested presenters are invited to send abstracts of 300 words and a 75 word bio to doingculturalstudies at gmail.com. Submissions are due on Friday 18 October 2013.

Presenters will be notified by Thursday 31 October 2013. A limited number of bursaries to assist with travel and accommodation costs will be available to confirmed presenters. Please indicate if you wish to be considered for a bursary when submitting your abstract, and what costs you will use the bursary to cover.

Registrations for attendees will close on Monday 11 November 2013. To register for this event email a 75 word bio to doingculturalstudies at gmail.com. Registration for the event is free and includes morning tea, lunch, and afternoon tea; there will also be an optional conference dinner at a cost of $25 to attendees. Places are limited.
