CfP: Inaugural Conference on Cultural Political Economy

Cultural Political Economy (CPE) is an emerging and still developing trans-disciplinary approach oriented to post-disciplinary horizons. It is concerned with making ‘cultural turns’ in the study of political economy to enhance its interpretive and explanatory power. The two-day post-disciplinary conference will take place from 1 - 2 September 2015 in Lancaster University. It will give researchers and post-graduate students an opportunity to examine and debate the philosophical and methodological foundations of CPE and to explore its substantive implications for research. It invites discussion at the interface of ‘cultural turns’, critical realism, critical discourse analysis and political economy. Specifically, it focuses on the cultural (and semiotic) dimensions of political economy considered both as a field of inquiry and as an ensemble of social relations. In the light of multiple crises at many sites and scales in the global economic, political, and social order, the organizers invite papers that address theoretical or substantive aspects of the changing nature and dynamic of contemporary social formations and identities.

CfP: International Symposium on Cultural Trajectories: Cultural Governance, What’s Next?

In the second half of the 20th century, movements of heritage conservation and political democratization made strong impacts on state cultural policies. Going through dialectic currents of cultural hegemony/counter-hegemony, elitism/pluralism, and the pursuit of civil and social rights, citizens around the world are drawing their attentions to the fulfillment of cultural rights. Agents’ positions on, and engagements in, cultural affairs are shaping the central concerns of cultural governance study today. Paper submissions are invited for the “2015 International Symposium on Cultural Trajectories: Cultural Governance, What’s Next?”, which is to be held at the Graduate School of Arts Management and Cultural Policy at National Taiwan University of Arts from November 13th to 15th 2015.

CFP International Conference Montréal 2016: For and Against Models of Official Multiculturalism and Multilingualism

In May 2016, the international interdisciplinary conference “For and Against Models of Official Multiculturalism and Multilingualism” will welcome experts from a broad range of disciplines to exchange views on official multilingualism in national, regional and municipal contexts at McGill University Montreal. While official multilingualism promotes and protects equal linguistic rights in legislation, often the constitution, for historic and symbolic reasons official languages do not always enjoy equal status in practice. Unequal cultural and linguistic power relations have been studied by numerous scholars in various disciplines and are recognized as a major hurdle to achieving true equality. In anticipation of Canada’s 150th birthday as an officially bilingual country, the conference will invite scholars to present research findings on the challenges and successes of multilingualism.
