[ Call for Papers | Applications ]

A Call for Applications for the Postgraduate Conference Contexts, Fields, Positions: Situating Cultural Research (University of East London, 25-26 May 2006) was announced.
This conference will provide an opportunity to consider how research contexts shape our study of culture. In the humanities and social sciences researchers think about and deploy the concept of culture in different ways, and this is what we want to explore. We refer to 'research contexts' in their broadest sense, including cultural, institutional and disciplinary locations, theoretical positions and methodologies. How do the conditions created and maintained within these contexts determine or shape our object of study?
Questions central to this conference are:
  • What kinds of analysis of culture are possible in different cultural, institutional and disciplinary contexts?
  • How has your research situation constituted the methods and findings of your research?
  • How has your theoretical framework helped you to select the subject you are researching and directed the approach you have taken?
  • What concepts of culture circulate in your field? How do these relate to other concepts such society, politics, history, nation, experience, and memory? And what are the connections between these and theorisations of identity?
  • Is your work part of an intellectual tradition? Has it been shaped by contemporary academic trends? Are your research interest strategic, and if so what has conditioned them?
  • Are there other contexts which have shaped your research but are not widely recognised as significant?

We expect the conference theme to be broadly interpreted. Some speakers may choose to focus on the findings of their research, while others may wish to address their methodological or theoretical approaches. Primarily, this conference presents an opportunity to reflect on the factors which have organised and shaped your research in a supportive and intellectually stimulating environment. It is open to postgraduate students from all disciplines and at all stages in their study.

Contexts, Fields, Positions is a postgraduate conference organised by postgraduate students in the School of Social Sciences, Media and Cultural Studies, University of East London.
