London calling, #2

Posted on | July 8, 2007 | 5 Comments

Update: Judith Halberstam’s title has changed, see below….

In just over a week, I’m heading over to the UK again for the Cultural Studies Now conference at the University of East London. Before the event, Angela McRobbie has kindly offered to host a seminar for those of us coming such a long way where we can discuss some of our other work (Catherine Driscoll and I will be presenting drafts from our forthcoming book). The result is below: please do spread the word and come along if you’re in London.

    Not sure if I can make the event but it sounds really interesting – will you be putting up the papers online somewhere?

    What Mark said – if your paper isn’t available online could you possibly email it to me? My bad luck to find out this is happening just down the road only to be on holiday a continent away!

    […] That’s the background and the set of issues I want to intervene in, and I’ll mainly be concentrating on the work I did as hybrid ethnographer-participant-trainer in various digital storytelling workshops. More importantly, I will be chasing down photo ops with Stuart Hall, Dick Hebdige and Judith Halberstam! I’m also really looking forward to this seminar on feminism and cultural theory at Goldsmiths.

    Hi David and Mark – my paper is part of a book chapter I’m writing (as is Catherine’s)… happy to circulate mine in draft form when it’s ready. Not sure about the others.

    Thanks for the interest, and sorry you can’t make it!
