The Northeast Popular/American Culture Association's (NEPCA) 2017 conference will be held at the University of Massachusetts Amherst on Friday, October 27th, and Saturday, October 28th, and I am seeking submissions for a pre-constituted panel on "Suicide in Popular Culture." The panel will explore the history, aesthetics, and ethics of representing suicide, in various cultural registers, including but not limited to: literature, film, television, music, theatrical productions, dance, visual and sequential art, video games, etc. Panelists can focus on the industries that produce/silence suicide narratives, the content of those narratives, and/or the audiences who extract meaning from them.

Poe’s understanding of the Human mind is one of the most complex structures in the American canon. It is difficult to understand each brain process as every human being possesses his/her own distinguished thought patterns with dissimilar complexity levels. A person’s behaviour deeply influences the  psyche, which ultimately alters into a habit by becoming entrenched into a person’s disposition. Today, the field of psychology tries to comprehend everything a mind is able to produce. On the other hand, years before Psychology became a field of thought and practiced professionally, a number of American authors threw a spotlight on the apparatus of the mind in their works.
