CFP: Teaching Popular Culture - Update
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.
In particular, I am the chair of the Teaching and Popular Culture area and I'm really interested in hearing about and seeing the different ways instructors use popular culture in their courses--be it their core curriculum or even courses on popular culture. If you have some ideas about a panel as a whole or individual papers that you would like to present on regarding this area, please be sure to submit. A larger goal of this area is to create a place to foster ideas and approaches to teaching popular culture, regardless of the discipline.
NEPCA Fall Conference information, including the paper proposal form, can be found here (https://nepca.wordpress.com/fall-conference/). Please submit the form, including a brief CV and abstract, located on the site. Both proposals for individual papers and complete panels will be considered. Please direct any questions to either 2015 Program Chair Kraig Larkin (firstname.lastname@example.org) and/or to the appropriate Area Chair. For a complete list of Area Chairs, please visit the NEPCA website (https://nepca.wordpress.com/fall-conference/nepca-area-chairs/). The deadline for proposals is June 15, 2015.
If you submitted prior to April 29th and did not receive an email confirmation of your submission, please contact email@example.com ASAP. We've had some reports of people submitting their abstract and not receiving a receipt and we want to make sure we have everyone who has submitted.
