Critical Ethnic and Race Studies – Call for Proposals


Call for Proposals

2017 CFP: Critical Ethnic and Race Studies


The Working Group on CRITICAL ETHNIC AND RACIAL STUDIES of the Cultural Studies Association would like to invite submissions for the 15th Annual Meeting of the Cultural Studies Association, to be held at Georgetown University, Washington DC, May 25-27th, 2017.

Deadline for Abstracts (500 words) is February 1, 2016.

The Critical Ethnic and Race Studies Working Group welcomes a wide range of proposals addressing central issues and questions in critical ethnic and racial studies. All relevant proposals will be considered.  However, we are particularly interested in proposals that contribute to a truly interdisciplinary, transnational conversation about racism, white supremacy, anti-blackness, anti-immigration, anti-Islam, and indigenous erasure as well as militarism, occupation, neocolonialism at the current historical conjuncture.  Especially welcome are proposals that seek to analyze these phenomena in the context of the larger capitalist social formation and/or that attempt to engage the broad theme of this year’s meeting, “Culture in the Age of Mass Debt.”

If interested in participating in one of the TWO Working Group-sponsored panels for Critical Ethnic and Race Studies, please submit via the EasyChair submission system.
Please send any questions to the Chair of the Working Group on the Theories Cultural Studies: Jaafar Aksikas at AND
