Cultural Studies Association Conference


The Cultural Studies program, the Department of Humanities, History, and Social Sciences, and the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences proudly presented the 9th Annual Cultural Studies Association (CSA) Conference on March 24-26, 2011.


This year's theme, New Directions in Cultural Studies, addressed current social, economic, political, cultural, institutional, and intellectual crises and uncertainties. Work from all areas and topics relevant to the growing field of cultural studies was represented, including literature, history, politics, anthropology, communications, popular culture, cultural theory, queer studies, critical race studies, feminist studies, legal studies, science studies, media and film studies, visual art, and performance studies, among others. More than 600 different presentations and events were held on a variety of cultural, artistic, economic, and political topics. Presenters from Columbia College, as well as over 30 countries, participated in the 9th Annual Conference, along with more than 540 attendees and guests.

Special thanks to the School of Liberal Arts and Sciences and the Office of the Vice President of Academic Affairs for cosponsoring this event, as well as all those who assisted and participated in making the conference a success.
