The Landscapes of Cultural Studies

First Alpe-Adria Cultural Studies Conference, from 13-15 October 2005 at 
the University of Klagenfurt (Austria)

In October 2005 the first international and transdisciplinary Alpe-Adria 
Cultural Studies Conference will take place at the University of 
Klagenfurt. For long Cultural Studies were primarily practiced in 
Anglophone countries. For some years now, however, they have been an issue 
on the European continent. Young researchers in particular have dealt with 
the basics, the methods and the perspectives of the theoretical and 
empirical discipline and have developed new projects and approaches which 
deal with their specific cultural contexts.
Against this background we would like to  on the one hand  invite 
researchers from the German-speaking area, but also from Italy, Slovenia 
and Croatia, to present their theoretical analyses, their research work and 
their projects. Here the focus of the conference is put explicitly on the 
issues of the Alpe-Adria-Region and the ways that Cultural Studies can 
contribute to the exploration and analysis of these specific issues. 
Potential discursive fields would be hybrid identities, borderlands, 
diaspora, ethnicity and conflicts, etc. On the other hand, we would 
like to call on all researchers who feel committed to the critical analysis 
of culture to contribute on issues they consider important for the 
understanding of the present of the 21st century and for the identification 
of the possibilities of transformation.
The keynote addresses will be delivered by Prof. Dr. Lawrence Grossberg 
(University of North Carolina-Chapel Hill), Prof. Dr. Hanno Hardt 
(University of Ljubljana, Slovenia) and by Prof. Dr. Douglas Kellner 
(University of California-Los Angeles).
We request your apply for papers respectively sessions until 15 July 2005 
(abstracts 300 words). The conference languages will be German and English. 
 From May 1st on information on the conference schedule, hotels and the 
social and cultural program (which will be designated by the Alpe-Adria 
region) will be available at the homepage of the Department for Media and 
Communication Studies at Please, send
