 An International Conference
 July 1-4, 1996, Tampere, Finland


Cultural studies is not a one-way street between the centre and
peripheries. Rather, it is a crossroads, a meeting point in
between different centres, disciplines and intellectual
movements. People in many countries and with different
backgrounds have worked their way to the crossroads
independently. They have made contacts, exchanged views and
gained inspiration from each other in pursuing their goals.
 The vitality of cultural studies depends on a continuous
traffic through this crossroads. Therefore the conference
organizers invite people with different geographical,
disciplinary and theoretical backgrounds together to share their
ideas. We encourage international participation from a wide range
of research areas.
 The conference is organized by the Department of Sociology
and Social Psychology, University of Tampere, and Network
Cultural Studies. The organizing committee represents several
universities and disciplines.
