The 8th international Crossroads will be held in Hong Kong, June 17-21, 2010. Hosted by Lingnan University, a distinctive liberal arts institution, and organized by its Department of Cultural Studies and Kwan Fong Cultural Research and Development Program, this will be the first time Crossroads holds this important academic gathering in East Asia.
Since its inception in 1996 in Tampere, Finland, the Crossroads in Cultural Studies Conference has filled a significant gap in the global academic community. It is now a key international conference in cultural studies where scholars from all five continents get together regularly to exchange research outputs, critical viewpoints and scholarly insights. Organized by the Association for Cultural Studies (ACS), the Crossroads conference is held every other year in different parts of the world: Birmingham in UK, Illinois in USA, Istanbul in Turkey and Kingston in Jamaica.
