        The Departments of German Studies, American Studies, English Literature,
        Political Sciences, Economics and Sociology at the University of
        Erlangen/Nuremberg, Germany, are inviting young scholars (graduates and

        Culture - Media - Economy
        6th Interdisciplinary, International Graduate Conference
        at the University of Erlangen/Nuremberg
        November 5 - 7, 2004
      &n bsp; The concept of 'border' is - paradoxically? - gaining new relevance in
        the wake of what is usually described as 'globalization', including such
        diverse phenomena as migration, inter-cultural communication,
        transformation or hybridization.
        This concept is equally important for those theories centering around
        identity and those centering around difference. In trying to cross
        national as well as disciplinary borders we are looking for
        contributions with current theoretical and/or empirical perspectives,
        critically analys ing the concept and/or the construction of borders. We
        would like to confront different angles on the subject and are hoping to
        create space for productive discussions.
        Possible topics include, but are not limited to:
        - Oikos/Nomos
        - Production/Distribution/Consumtion
        - Constructions of Knowledge
        - Biopolitics

        - Discourse Analyses
        - Power Structures
   &nb sp;    - Marxologics & Criticism of Ideology
        - LanguageRituals & Representations
        - Hybrid Cultures
        - Ethics after Postmodernism
        - Postcolonialisms
