(Re)conceptualizing the “margins”: Alterity and resistance in critical and communication theory
We are pleased to present the School of Communication's annual Critical
Studies Conference (CSC), to take place next Friday, April 28th and
Saturday, April 29th at Harbour Centre, Room 1415. Our theme this year is
(Re)conceptualizing the ³margins²: Alterity and resistance in critical and
communication theory. Please find the program attached.
The conference features seven panels, a soundwalk of downtown Vancouver, and
two keynote lectures by political economy scholar Janet Wasko and local
activist and author Harsha Walia.
Following Janet Wasko's presentation on Friday, we will be having dinner and
drinks at Nuba Gastown. If you would like to join us for dinner, please RSVP
through eventbrite so that we are able to confirm numbers:
Faculty, staff, graduate students, undergraduate students, and members of
the general public are all encouraged to attend. Please circulate this
invitation among any interested friends, family, and your contacts in other
departments. Feel free to join us for any part of the conference. No
