Birmingham Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies 50 Years On

24 June 2014to25 June 2014

CCSR is pleased to publicise this event which will explore the legacy and influence of the CCCS 50 years after its inception.

To mark the launch of an archive of the Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies at the University of Birmingham, this conference will reflect on the influence and legacies of the CCCS, both inside the academy and beyond. Following Richard Hoggart’s pioneering decision to embark on the research of popular culture, and the subsequent appointment of Stuart Hall, the Centre became one of the biggest influences on the development of cultural and media studies around the world. The aim of the conference is to bring together former members of staff with all those interested in its work and influence, both inside and outside universities. It will examine the global reach of the Centre, the teaching and research methods that were employed and the lessons the Centre can provide in the current political and cultural contexts.

Speakers

Confirmed speakers include Geoff Eley, Lawrence Grossberg, Stuart Hall, Richard Johnson, Jo Littler and Jackie Stacey. A full programme will be posted online in due course.
