“Doing southern studies is unmasking and refusing the binary thinking--‘North’/‘South,’ nation/South, First World/Third World, self/other--that postcolonial studies has taught us is the most damaging rhetorical structure of empire. Doing southern studies is thinking geographically, thinking historically, thinking relationally, thinking about power, thinking about justice, thinking back.”             --Scott Romaine & Jennifer Rae Greeson

deadline for submissions: 
Thursday, December 12, 2019

I am seeking 20 minute paper proposals for a panel that considers the various literary uses and conceptions of ghosts as a mode of memory, projection, history, trauma, and reconciliation/redemption. Part of the foundational premise of the ghost story is a disturbance in the present that comes from the past; an unsettling interaction between mind and matter, memory and perception, the living and the dead. All paper proposals that consider these aspects of ghost stories (as literature/writing) are welcome.

The Far West Popular Culture Association will be held on February 22-24, 2020 in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the Palace Station Hotel/Casino.

Please send a 250 word abstract and a brief bio to:

Holidays are central components of culture. They can be celebratory or commemorative.

They help us mark the calendar, highlight important sociocultural milestones, measure the passage of time, follow the turning of the seasons, and, in so doing, organize life and society.
