The Northeast Popular/American Culture Association is seeking papers on popular and American culture, broadly construed, for its annual fall conference to be held on Friday October 30 and Saturday October 31, 2015, on the campus of Colby-Sawyer College in New London, NH. NEPCA prides itself on holding conferences that emphasize sharing ideas in a non-competitive and supportive environment. We welcome proposals from graduate students, junior faculty, and senior scholars. NEPCA conferences offer intimate and nurturing sessions in which new ideas and works-in-progress can be aired, as well as completed projects.

Studies of the global, the transnational, the cross-cultural and the postcolonial have (re-)emerged in recent years as part of a broader interest in the ways we speak to each other across and within boundaries of space and time. The term "cosmopolitan" is one that can be used to capture the divergent meanings raised by these in different contexts – "in its wide and wavering nets," Carol Breckenridge has argued, cosmopolitanism "catches something of our need to ground our sense of mutuality in conditions of mutability, and to learn to live tenaciously in terrains of historic and cultural transition" (Cosmopolitanism).
