This Year’s Conference to Examine Timely Issues of Policing, Violence, and Racism
We are proud to announce that the Cultural Studies Association’s annual conference will take place at Villanova June 2-5, 2016. This international conference is expected to bring 300 national and international scholars, activists, and artists to campus. Villanova faculty and students are welcome to attend and participate. Keynote plenary speakers will include Bernadine Evaristo, the award-winning British writer. The theme of this year’s conference, Policing Crises Now, provides a unique opportunity to engage in a comprehensive, critical conversation on the timely issues of policing, violence, and racism in the US and beyond. Many other cultural topics will be analyzed in terms of the most recent theoretical and activist approaches.
