>Proposals for seminars are due September 15, 2008.
>Seminars are small-group (maximum 15 
>individuals) discussion sessions for which 
>participants prepare in advance of the 
>conference. In previous years, preparation has 
>involved shared readings, pre-circulated 
>''position papers'' by seminar leaders and/or 
>participants, and other forms of pre-conference 
>collaboration. We particularly invite proposals 
>for seminars designed to advance emerging lines 
>of inquiry and research/teaching initiatives 
>within Cultural Studies broadly construed. We 
>also invite seminars designed to generate future 
>collaborations among conference attendees. Once 
>a limited number of seminar topics and leaders 
>are chosen, the seminars will be announced 
>through the CSA's various public e-mail lists. 
>Participants will contact the seminar leader(s) 
>directly who will then inform the Program 
>Committee who will participate in the 
>seminar.  Seminars will be marked in the 
>conference programs as either closed to 
>non-participants or open to other conference 
>attendees as auditors (or in other 
>roles).  Examples of successful seminar 
>proposals from previous years are linked in here 
>(if you are reading this on the website).
>All seminar proposals require:
>a. A 500-word overview of the topic designed to 
>attract participants and clear instructions 
>about how the seminar will work, including 
>details about what advanced preparation will be 
>required of seminar participants.
>b. The name, email address, phone number, 
>mailing address, and departmental and 
>institutional affiliation of the leader(s) proposing the seminar.
>c. A brief bio or one page CV of the leader(s) proposing the seminar.
>d. A request for any needed audio-visual 
>equipment. All AV equipment must be requested 
>with the proposal. Since seminars typically 
>involve discussion of previously circulated 
>papers, such requests must be explained.
>Seminar proposals should be sent to:
>Bruce Burgett, Professor and Interim Director, 
>Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences
>University of Washington Bothell
>(burgett /at/
>Colin Danby, Associate Professor, Interdisciplinary Arts and Sciences,
