Acsis_logo-120Every other year since 2005, The Advanced Cultural Studies Institute of Sweden (ACSIS) has organised a broad-based cultural studies conference that has brought together scholars in the field from Sweden and abroad. The theme of the 2013 conference is On the Move. People, ideas and things are moving in many areas and directions all over the world and cultural studies research plays a key role in furthering our understanding of these movements.

The conference will take place 11-13 June 2013 in Norrköping, Sweden, and welcomes contributions in the form of individual papers, sessions or workshops connected to movement and its cultural significance.

Proposals may be related to dimensions of movement including any of the following:

  • Social movements
  • Spatial movements
  • Cross-border movements
  • Movement as change
  • Physical movement
  • Conceptual and methodological movement

Deadline for proposals of <250 words is 1 April 2013; see more details here. There are no fees for participating in the conference.
