Working Group on Globalization and Culture

 

The 2009-2010 project of the Working Group on Globalization and Culture is entitled Society of Security. It is being presented at the Humanities Institute at SUNY-Stony Brook, at the American Studies Colloquium at Yale University, and at the 2010 Crossroads in Cultural Studies conference.

The Working Group on Globalization and Culture is a continuing collective research project, a cultural studies "laboratory," that has been running since the fall of 2003. The group is made up of graduate students and faculty from several disciplines.

The Working Group meets regularly to discuss common readings, to develop collective and individual research projects, and to present that research publicly. The general theme for the working group is globalization and culture, with three principal aspects: a) the globalization of cultural industries and goods, and its consequences for patterns of everyday life as well as for forms of fiction, film, broadcasting, and music; b) the trajectories of social movements and their relation to patterns of migration, the rise of global cities, the transformation of labor processes, and forms of ethnic, class, and gender conflict; c) the emergence of and debates within transnational social and cultural theory. The specific focus, projects, and directions of the working group are determined by the interests, expertise, and ambitions of the members of the group, and change as its members change. To inquire about joining the working group, contact Michael Denning.

The research of the Working Group is disseminated in Work and Culture, the ILC's Working Papers series.

The 2008-2009 project of the Working Group on Globalization and Culture was Another World is Possible: Froms of Hope, Longing, and Utopia.

The 2007-2008 project of the Working Group on Globalization and Culture was entitled Worlds and Contact Zones. Participants in Practicing Transnational Cultural Studies: Dialogues between Working Groups at Yale University and New York University, a conference at the Voluntown Peace Trust on May 11-13, 2008, may access the papers here.

The 2006-2007 project was entitled Audiopolitics: Measures of Global Soundscapes
