[인터아시아 문화연구 썸머캠프] 2008 제1회 : “Imagining ‘Inter-Asian-ness’ beyond Neo-liberalism”

The 1st Inter-Asia Cultural Studies Society  Summer Camp

|Title: “Imagining ‘Inter-Asian-ness’ beyond Neo-liberalism”

This Summer Camp aims at organizing an open forum where young cultural studies researchers and graduate students gather and discuss common interests and current issues. The camp intends to provide participants with the opportunity to share, with fellow-researchers and cultural practitioners, concerns about emerging cultural phenomena and agenda in Asia and beyond. Another purpose of the camp lies in fostering the participants’ visions and passions as future scholars and activists.

Today, the neo-liberalist order is greatly influencing the methods of governance, the profit-making of corporations, the general trend of popular culture, and the knowledge production of academia. Cultural researchers are in the situation of having to understand the actual workings of the world through creating critical discourses and cultural practices. This camp is a place for education, in which next generation cultural researchers gather and communicate through researching radical changes brought about by neo-liberalist order.

Throughout the Camp, young researchers and students who are interested in the cultural currency and urgency of Asia will have uplifting experiences of learning and networking by discussing with scholars, experts, activists, and policy-makers. Asia is rapidly changing and the future generation of cultural studies researchers and cultural workers is emerging. In the camp, we wish to create a critical perspective toward what is happening “here and now” in the inter-Asia and a sustainable platform for solidarity and collaboration among the young generation.
