*Since its inception in 1996 in Tampere, Finland, the Crossroads in Cultural Studies Conference has filled a significant gap in the global academic community. It is now a key international conference in cultural studies where scholars from all five continents get together regularly to exchange research outputs, critical viewpoints and scholarly insights. Organized by the Association for Cultural Studies (ACS), the Crossroads conference is held every other year in different parts of the world: Birmingham in UK, Illinois in USA, Istanbul in Turkey and Kingston in Jamaica.
