Call for Proposals
Midwest Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association 2010
Panel and paper proposal deadline: 30 APRIL 2010
The African Studies area of the Midwest Popular Culture Association seeks panel and paper proposals for the annual Midwest Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association conference, this year to be held at the Sheraton Bloomington Hotel in Minneapolis, MN from Friday 1 October to Sunday 3 October.
The area seeks papers whose topics address any aspect of popular culture on the African continent. Topics might address, but are not in any way limited to:
Crisis Carnival 2010: Spectacle! The Seduction of Illusion
What do the Olympic opening ceremony, drag queens, and Shakespeare have in common?
Linguistic theorists such as Judith Butler, Jean Baudrillard, and Guy Debord have all conjectured that we engage daily in performances that obscure the line between illusion and reality. These performances both re-affirm and challenge society's values, boundaries, and taboos. By analyzing these spectacles, we can question the relationship between performance and the "real," with the hopes of discovering the motivations behind these seductive visions.

Call for Academic Proposals, Poetry, Short Fiction, and Scripts
This is a conference focused on sharing ideas about composition in the classroom, teaching/creating creative works, discussing practices and pitfalls of the craft of writing, and talking about our favorite comp theorists, poets, and writers.
Creative Writing Papers may focus on any particular poet/writer/playwright, style of writing, or individual/group creative works (including poems, scripts, short stories, novel excerpts, etc.) are welcome. Composition Papers may focus on any particular comp/rhet theory/theorist, classroom practices, or individual/group workshops.
As researchers we 'consume' texts, reading, interpreting and reusing material found in archives or specialist electronic resources. Libraries are a key tool in this process. Library-based research is no longer restricted to the book, but also encompasses archived materials, electronic databases and local resources. This conference provides an opportunity to explore both the practical and theoretical issues arising from attempts to understand the past: training sessions will investigate the use of archival resources in the Arts and Humanities whilst panellists will also consider how texts themselves conceptualise and appropriate the past.
