Cultures in Disarray: Destruction / Reconstruction

Cultures are in disarray as never before assaulted and undermined by a complex mix of alienating ideology and transformational technologies. Is culture craving for a paradigm shift? Or is this state of disarray just another moment of re-construction within culture? See the FULL CALL FOR PAPERS.

The conference programme and Book of Abstracts are available here: Cultures in Disarray PROGRAMME + Book of Abstracts. Presentations are expected to last about 15 minutes, followed by 10 minutes of questions from the floor. We will provide the usual IT equipment, but feel free to present your paper in any creative way you wish. If you’re using slides, make sure to arrive a few minutes before your panel starts and hand in your presentation to the chair (USB stick or download from email/cloud is fine). The chair is easy to spot – he or she will be the smiling person standing next to the computer.

The conference will take place at the Strand campus of King’s College London (Strand campus map, rooms K1.28 & S-1.22).  On both days there will be social events in the evening. You can also join us on the Facebook event page. We look forward to seeing you there!
