In conjunction with the Ryerson/York University Joint Graduate Programme in
Communication & Culture, the Toronto Universities Policy Discussion Group
invites graduate students to share their research in a special one-day workshop
focusing on communications, culture, politics and policy. The workshop will be
held as an adjunct session to the Communication & Culture Programme's fifth
annual graduate student conference (24-26 March), to be held at Ryerson
University, Toronto.

The workshop's aim is to support academic experimentation and discussion,
towards developing a community of inter-disciplinary scholars concerned with
political and policy-related issues.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

- analysis of historical and contemporary events and institutions
- current theories and models in communications and culture studies
- challenges to dominant understandings within a broad, complex field

Submissions from researchers trained outside the field of communications and
culture, as well as from outside politics and policy studies are encouraged.

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSIONS: Friday, 20 January 2006

The workshop will be oriented around sessions of two or three 10-15 minute paper
presentations followed by questions.

All interested participants are asked to submit an abstract outlining the basic
themes and argument their presentation will make. Abstract should be no more
than 250 words (one typewritten page, double spaced) and submitted via email as
an attachment in .TXT, .RTF, or Microsoft Word format. Name and contact
information should not appear on this page.
