2016 Midwest Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association
October 6-9, 2016
Hilton Rosemont Chicago O'Hare
We are looking for proposals for arguably the hottest area in popular culture: Youth Literature and Media. Youth Culture is everywhere. From the rise of YA Lit to the fall of Facebook, twenty-five is the new eighteen. The Millennials are here. This area is for the study of Lit and Media for Youth (all three terms broadly conceived), representations of youth in Lit and Media, and youth as consumers and producers of Lit and Media.
