Southwest/Texas Popular Culture and American Culture Association

The Southwest/Texas Popular Culture and American Culture Association will hold its 33nd Annual Conference in Albuquerque, NM on February 8-11, 2012. Proposals are now being accepted for panels on Reality TV.

Over the past decade, the global proliferation of reality TV programming has exploded. It is hard to flip through television stations at any given hour of the day without coming across some sort of reality programming that is reflecting another niche in the ever-evolving cultural landscape of the modern world. At the moment, reality TV is a field of study that has enormous potential because it touches such a wide range of subjects—from media studies to business, regional studies to education, social sciences to the humanities.

History of Authorship, Reading & Publishing (SHARP)

Seeking papers on material-cultural themes in PLAY PUBLISHING--any era, language, location, or textual media, especially topics involving a tension or conflict (the conference theme is, "The Battle for Books"): author strife; censorship; playbooks in military use; publisher struggles in design, manufacture, distribution, competition, contests of copyright/intellectual property, etc. I'm hoping to propose a complete panel.
Conference: SHARP 2012 June 26-29 2012, Dublin, Ireland (Trinity College). Conference CFP: http://www.tcd.ie/longroomhub/events/forthcoming/SHARP2012.php

CFP: Fronteras, disidencias y márgenes por cartografiar, 1 abril de 2012

Centro de Estudios Latinoamericanos "Rómulo Gallegos" (Celarg), Caracas, República Bolivariana de Venezuela

Desbordar el territorio, bordear, explorar nuestro afuera. Apostar a apropiarse de las zonas y objetos que no tienen nombre. Infringir. Disentir para labrar nuevos caminos. Explorar territorios sin ley, donde aún todo está por inventarse, incluso a costa del peligro. Escindir la lengua, escindir la práctica, derivar, multiplicar. Un recorrido en la frontera es siempre inaprensible, desdibujado. Pero urge volver a circundar cada tanto nuestro margen, nuestro afuera, nuestro límite: hacernos ajenos para volver a vernos.

[UPDATE] New Voices 2012: "Legitimate Ireland"

New Voices in Irish Criticism: "Legitimate Ireland"
19th – 21st April 2012
Institute of Irish Studies
Queen's University, Belfast

From plantations to Grattan's parliament, poitín distillers to the IMF bailout, the Irish have always had a fraught relationship with institutions of political, social and religious power. This raises questions surrounding the legitimacy of performative and systemic aspects of Irishness, which has been and continues to be in flux both north and south of the border.
