*Conference Theme: Cultural Transformations*
It now seems that the future is no longer rushing to meet us but has already arrived. The speed and extent of the cultural transformations currently taking place around us raise urgent and imperative questions. Cultural studies researchers have recently turned to examine these questions across a representatively broad range of fields, including gender and sexuality studies, critical race and disability studies, film and media studies, internet and digital cultural studies, affect studies and the environmental humanities. Yet significant work remains to be done. How are we to respond most effectively to such issues as the disappearance of salaried jobs and their replacement with a gig economy, to climate change and species extinction, to the rise of 'populism' and the new right, as well as the ever-worsening treatment of refugee and indigenous populations, to the systemic gender and sexuality-based disadvantage revealed by #metoo and the divisive SSM poll, to the emergence of AI and algorithmic logics, as well as gene-editing and other biomedical technologies?

The 2019 conference of the Cultural Studies Association of Australasia aims to provide a forum at which both the challenges posed and the opportunities afforded by these transformations can be collectively addressed. Taking as its theme 'Cultural Transformations', the conference welcomes proposals for papers or panels that address this topic from a diverse and inclusive range of perspectives, as well as general papers in Cultural Studies. Although the CSAA primarily focuses on the Australasian community, we very much welcome multicultural and international submissions!
