2018 Crossroads Submission Deadline Extended to December 20th, 2017

Dear all,

Considering the obstruction in accessing the Crossroads 2018 conference website in the last three weeks of October, the organizing committee has decided to extend the submission deadline to December 20th, 2017 for both the main conference and pre-conference.

You can submit your panel or paper proposal here.


For Conference: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=xroads2018


For Pre-conference: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=pcxr2018




This is the very first time for “Crossroads in Cultural Studies” conference to come to Mainland China. Hosted by Shanghai University, Crossroads 2018 has an exciting line up. Participants will have the opportunity to engage with leading researchers in the field. Featured speakers for now include Meaghan Morris, Lawrence Grossberg, WEN Tiejun, Sandro Mezzadra, Neferti X.M. Tadiar, and many more speakers to be announced!


Also, a unique online bulletin board called “People’s Park” (http://www.cul-studies.com/index.php?m=content&c=index&a=show&catid=6&id=1709)has been made accessible. Participants who need to organize panels are encouraged to find their panel partners with this platform. Please feel free to contact them to organize panels if you have similar ideas. You can also email the organizers (crossroads2018@outlook.com) with the subject line “People’s Park” if you are willing to find panel partners by joining “People’s Park.” A Microsoft Word attachment file (doc, docx) including the topic of your individual paper, suggestions for the topics of the potential panel you might organize, and personal information such as an email address and research interests will also be needed.
