FIRST CALL FOR PAPERS: CROSSROADS IN CULTURAL STUDIES, 2016 For the first time in its history, Crossroads in Cultural Studies is coming to the southern hemisphere. Hosted by the University of Sydney and Western Sydney University, the 11th International Conference Crossroads in Cultural Studies will be held in Sydney, Australia, from December 14th to 17th 2016, bringing scholars together in the beautiful summertime setting of Sydney University to engage with the past, present and future of cultural studies scholarship. The Crossroads in Cultural Studies Conference has played an important role in the creation of a global discussion of Cultural Studies. It has become a major international conference where scholars from all five continents gather regularly to exchange research, views, and insights. Organized by the Association for Cultural Studies (ACS), the Crossroads conference is held every other year in different parts of the world. Previous conferences have taken place in Birmingham (United Kingdom), Urbana-Champaign (USA), Istanbul (Turkey), Kingston (Jamaica), Hong Kong (China), Paris (France), and Tampere (Finland). A day-long postgraduate/graduate research student conference will precede the main conference (on 13 December, 2016). •	Submit your proposal using the online forms before April 30th, 2016: The call for both paper and pre-organised panel proposals is now open.
