The Cultural Studies Colloquium

Always free and open to the public - CSC is an interdisciplinary forum for the presentation of new research on the important issues of our time.

CSC is presented by the Cultural Studies Program of George Mason University, bringing scholars of diverse methodological, theoretical, and topical expertise to share new and cutting-edge interdisciplinary research.
