Women’s Studies and Popular Culture

The Women’s Studies area seeks papers, panels and roundtables that
investigate and discuss any of the many overlaps between gender and popular
culture. Topics could include, but are certainly not limited to:

*women and the media
*women and politics
*portrayals of motherhood
*female sexuality and popular culture
*working women
*women and religion
*women writers, written women

MAPACA supports all approaches; one goal of this conference is to create
interdisciplinary exchange, and the Women’s Studies area therefore seeks
papers by scholars from all fields of study. Students, both graduate and
undergraduate, are encouraged to apply.

MAPACA also desires an interactive, engaged conference and therefore
encourages presenters to try new presentation methods.
