Call for Panels and Papers

A joyous thank you for all who answered our first Call for Panels! The program has now 26 panels and working groups for which we now open a call for individual papers.

You may also still send proposals for new panels, so that the conference program will have even more breadth and scope. Paper proposals may but need not to be pointed to a certain panel or working group in the programme.

Check out the preliminary and updated conference program.

On Dec 8th there will be a pre-conference writing clinic “Kirjoittamisen ilot/Joy of Writing” for doctoral students of cultural studies.
