The MPCA/ACA is seeking paper proposals that address any aspect of 19th century American popular culture. We are especially interested in papers that focus on culture from a specific critical perspective; however, no particular approach is required. Possible topics include (but are not limited to):
- Dime novels
- Westward expansion
- Native Americans
- Women in popular culture
Send a 250-word abstract along with full contact information to panel chair, Patrick Prominski (firstname.lastname@example.org). Be sure to include MPCA/ACA in the subject header. Deadline for submissions is May 1, 2009.
