Deadline: January 9th 2015
Papers are invited for a one-day symposium – Subcultures International: The Global Circulation of Style. This AHRC-funded event will consider the international flow and local configuration of subcultural styles, fashions and identities. Focusing on the development of local, trans-local and global subcultural scenes, the symposium will discuss the ways in which circulation, space and place work to create, shape and limit the nature of subcultural expression. Particular attention will be afforded to the worldwide processes of subcultural transmission and exchange, and their relation to issues of age, ethnicity, gender, class and sexuality.
Speakers already confirmed include Prof. Hilary Pilkington (University of Manchester) Prof. Carol Tulloch (University of the Arts, London).
Papers are invited that relate to any aspect of the global flow and local expression of subcultural identities. Submissions comprising title and an abstract of no more than 300 words should be sent to (GlobalFashion /at/ uwl.ac.uk) by no later than January 9th 2015.
