Call for Papers

6th Annual Global Fusion Conference
Nation, State, and Culture in the Age of Globalization
Chicago, Illinois
Friday, September 29-Sunday, October 1, 2006
University Center, 525 State Street Chicago, IL

Certain renderings of media globalization posit a disappearing 
nation-state superseded by global corporate operations and global 
cultural practices and identities. Hybridity, cultural proximity, 
glocalization, cultural imperialism, transnational media consolidation, 
and other concepts often dance with the role of nation, state, or 
culture, but seldom consider their complex, material interactions. We 
are left with important theoretical and practical questions: How have 
identifiable global media practices transformed specific national 
identities and social interests?
