The Activism area of the Mid-Atlantic Popular & American Culture Association (MAPACA) is seeking proposals for the 2018 Conference (November 8 – 10) in Baltimore, Maryland.
We welcome submissions from a broad range of perspectives (media studies, gender studies, English, cultural studies, history, political science, art and art history, etc.) relating to activism and/or activists from regional/local to national/global levels. Proposals might examine activism in the age of Trump (Black Lives Matter, conservative movements, immigration, etc.), activism and music, environmental activists, lawyers and legal/judicial activism, etc.). Proposals may consider activism from historical and/or alternative perspectives.
