> Moving Borders, *will look at young people in Poland, the Czech Republic,
> Slovakia and Hungary - what are sometimes called the Visigrad states.  All
> four countries have been through major political, economic and social
> changes in the past two decades: how much have these impacted on the young
> people born since 1989?  Do they have different constructions of their
> understanding of their country, and of Europe, than their parents or
> grandparents?  The lecture will present the results of a series of focus
> groups in which over 250 young people, in small groups, discussed their
> ideas about their identities and futures.
> 
> The lecture will take place  on *Wednesday 26th October from 5.30-7pm in
> Room GCG-08,* Graduate Centre, London Metropolitan University, London N7
> 8DB. The lecture is free of charge but places are limited. If you wish to

> This aim of this seminar is to discuss how current changes in the labour

> emotionally experienced by young people in different localities and what
> influences cultural shifts (or cultural ‘sticking’) in these communities.
> The seminar aims to bring together and begin a dialogue between research,
> policy and practice at a time when the future of further and higher
> education, youth training and employment opportunities for young people are
> increasingly uncertain and to explore how these wider shifts play out at a
> local level.

> Current demands that social science should maximize its impact

> assumptions are defective not only in relation to qualitative

> I will examine broader notions of the 'impact' that qualitative
> work can have, for example as embodied in the idea of a public
> sociology.

> 
> We are seeking papers that examine geographies of cinema, television, music, art, advertising, the Internet, newspapers and magazines, video and animation etc.  These sessions should include contributions to current issues surrounding these media, beginning with constructions of space & place, cultural, society, and identity.
> 
> We are hoping to present a wide range of both topic and context and seek participants interested in the geographical implications - social, political, cultural, and economic - that are often contained within the spaces and places of different forms of media. Media extend beyond their original form and so papers should also envision these geographies as part of a broader industrial and political complex in which culture is an economic commodity set within the broader frame of a global and postmodern era, and with the links between these realms and our daily lived experiences, from our cities to streets to living rooms to imaginations. These contexts invite inquiries into the production, distribution, exhibition, and consumption of all types of media and we encourage critical, pedagogical and discursive contributions. We would also welcome inquiries from anyone wishing to assemble a special themed session or act as a discussant in a session.
> 
> To present a paper you must do the following before October 10, 2011:
> 
> 1. Compose an abstract following the AAG guidelines
> 
> 2.  Register online with the AAG to obtain a personal ID number
