       On the Move: ACSIS Cultural Studies Conference 2013

Every 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 ACSIS Cultural Studies Conference 2013 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 we welcome contributions in the form of individual papers, sessions or workshops connected in various ways 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
