The Annual International Crime, Media and Popular Culture Studies Conference was established to encourage an international cross-disciplinary exchange between both academic scholars and practitioners who are engaged in research, teaching and practices associated with crime, deviance, history, social justice, policy, and law and their relationship with the media and popular culture. The conference serves as a forum for the dissemination of knowledge associated with these areas of study in an effort to engender further growth of the discipline among students, academicians and practitioners.
This is a conference on language, culture and identity for language professionals at the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Poblet Monastery in Tarragona, Spain. Keynote speakers: Michael Cronin and Maureen Freely.
This inter- and multi-disciplinary conference explores dying and death and the ways culture impacts care for the dying, the overall experience of dying, and ways the dead are remembered. Over the past three decades, scholarship in thanatology has increased dramatically. This particular conference seeks a broad array of perspectives that explore, analyze, and/or interpret the myriad interrelations and interactions that exist between death and culture. Culture not only presents and portrays ideas about “a good death” and norms that seek to achieve it, culture also operates as both a vehicle and medium through which meaning about death is communicated and understood. Sadly, too, culture sometimes facilitates death through violence.
The conference will explore the links between Mathematics and Cultural Studies in a wider British context by establishing mathematics as the common denominator between individual panels for literature, philosphy, popular culture, etc.
