BODIES IN FLUX CONFERENCE
December 2021: CSAA Cultural Studies Association of Australasia
at Edith Cowan University, Perth
As you are all aware, due to the impact of COVID19, we have had to reconsider the dates for the CSAA Conference Bodies in Flux. After some careful consideration, we are pleased to confirm that the CSAA ‘Bodies in Flux’ Conference will now run in December 2021. Of course, all submitted abstracts will retain validity, and there will be scope for another round of submissions now too. Exact dates in December are pending and we will keep you all updated.
Thank you for your interest and support. We look forward to seeing you at ECU in Perth next year!

CSAA 2021: Bodies In Flux
The conference theme calls for papers that interrogate the notion of bodies and change, with the understanding that the body frames everyday life (human and non-human). Bodies in flux, both political and politicised bodies, might be understood in terms of local, national and global contexts.
In our current cultural climate of disruption, mobility, movement and tension, how do bodies function in relation to each other, to the social order, hierarchies, and culture. In addition, we welcome cultural studies submissions (panels and individual papers) that explore how bodies become produced and excluded through discursive practices.
Re-call for papers to be announced.
