The Advanced Cultural Studies Institute of Sweden (ACSIS) is a national centre for interdisciplinary cultural research, affiliated with Linköping University’s Campus Norrköping.
Our ultimate goal is to strengthen the research field of cultural studies by serving as a bridge-builder between institutions, subjects and perspectives. ACSIS is a coordinating and dynamic resource for Swedish cultural researchers, acting as a link to the transnational field of cultural studies. During 2014 ACSIS will largely focus on the public interfaces of cultural research.
June 15-17 2015 ACSIS will arrange its sixth biennial conference on cultural research in Norrköping, Sweden, themed “In the Flow: People, Media, Materialities”. Cultural studies scholars from all over the world are invited to propose and organise group sessions that run in parallel throughout the conference.
Raka Shome will be visiting researcher at ACSIS in September-October. Shome will be based in Norrköping, but also visit Umeå and Växjö. Shome's publications include the forthcoming "Diana and Beyond: White femininity, National Identity and Contemporary Media Culture".
The next conference invites cultural and social researchers from all disciplines to examine the interacting flows of people, materialities, ideas and media technologies.The conference will be held in Norrköping the 15th-17th of June 2015.
Call for sessions and papers will be announced in the beginning of the fall 2014.
Editors for the issue are Jutta Haider and Olof Sundin. It consists of seven articles and four field reports that explore the role, meaning and use of encyclopaedias, past and present, from Encyclopedia Britannica to Wikipedia.
The academic journal Culture Unbound celebrate five years of success. We therefore invite to a public workshop on the subject “Publishing for Public Knowledge”. Short presentations by specially invited Editorial Board members, will deal with various issues of knowledge production, public spheres, university policies, open access and journal publishing. Invited speakers are Roman Horak, Ferda Keskin, Celia Lury, Geoff, Stahl, Mark Banks, Eva Hemmungs Wirtén, Jenny Johannisson och Toby Miller.
