Crossroads 2002, Tampere, Finland

Asko Nieminen

Fourth International Conference
June 29 - July 2, 2002, Tampere, Finland




After the extremely successful Crossroads 2000 in Birmingham, UK, our plan
was to continue the international tour of the Crossroads conference site.
Unfortunately, we did not manage to get the next conference organized
either in Amsterdam or elsewhere. Therefore, the next international
biannual Crossroads in Cultural Studies conference will again take place
in Tampere, Finland, where it first started in 1996.

Speakers will include

Henry Giroux Akhil Gupta Anu Kantola David Morley
Janet Wolff
Shunya Yoshimi * Ming-Bao Yue

The mission of the Crossroads conference is to provide an open forum for
all topics that interest the diverse international cultural studies
community; to make contacts, exchange views and gain inspiration from each
other. We encourage international participation from different countries,
disciplines and cultural backgrounds, and from a wide range of research
areas. In that way, the conference will also show where cultural studies
is going next.

To succeed in this, we especially encourage you to send us session
proposals. You may propose a session with a complete list of participants,
or just send us the title and session abstract, so people can see it
advertised and contact you with their paper proposals. To learn more about
the Crossroads conference and how to participate, just visit our web site

On the Crossroads conference web page you can also join the crossroads2002
discussion group, where ideas about session themes can be exchanged and

You are all warmly welcome to the Fourth International Crossroads in
Cultural Studies conference!

Best regards,

Pertti Alasuutari
Chair of the organizing committee
