Call for Papers: Creating Cultures, a postgraduate conference in Culture,
Media, and the Creative Industries, King's College London


Keynote speaker: Prof. Lev Manovich, CUNY

Held on the 12th and 13th of June 2014, this multi-disciplinary
postgraduate conference seeks a broad array of perspectives that explore
cultural representations, practices, and industries. The title 'Creating
Cultures' prompts inquiries into concepts of culture being created,
cultures of creativity, cultures evolving and changing, and also cultures
of creative work and play.

Culture evokes ideas about its conflicting and disputed foundations, and
culture as a medium through which social, political, spatial, and
historical meanings are communicated and understood. The theme of this
conference invites explorations of power relations, gender, subjectivity,
the spatial, technology and contemporary media.

Power and cultural politics
Identity and representation
