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. 

We are grateful to our co-sponsors for the generous support that has made this programming possible: University Life, Interdisciplinary Curriculum Collaborative, Global Interdisciplinary Programs, Schar School of Policy and Government, History and Art History, English, Communications, Philosophy, and Women’s and Gender Studies.
