Cultural Typhoon 2019 (CT2019) Statement

[Alt]+[CS]=?  Towards an Alternative Cultural Studies Cultural Typhoon was first held at Waseda University in 2003 under the theme ‘Expressive Culture and Anti-Globalization in the Global Era’. A certain current of emotion that emanated there induced us—Keio University team—to stage a guerrilla performance in front of the Okuma Auditorium.

Announcement on Cultural Typhoon 2018

Announcement on Cultural Typhoon 2018   Place: Ryukoku University, Kyoto(Ohmiya Campus) Date: 23rd, 24th June 2018 Sixteen years have passed since the first Cultural Typhoon was held at Waseda University in 2003. At that time, the Iraq war was launched, and neoliberal policy began to become dominant.
