This year the SW/TX PCA/ACA celebrates its 30th Birthday with our theme,
â€œReeling in the Years: 30 Years of Film, TV, and Popular Culture.â€ Papers
are particularly sought on aspects of film, TV, and popular culture of the
last 30 years with an emphasis on the popular culture of 1979.
Since the 1970s, the Southwest/Texas PCA/ACA has sought to foster
interdisciplinary study of popular and American literary, historical,
visual, and other cultural and media texts. We like to think we are a
unique organization that pioneered the study of Popular Culture before it
was cool. While our offerings have grown over the years to include areas
of international study, we still invite scholars and artists to share their
perspectives on American life in the diverse region of the Southwest.
Information about our areas of study, graduate student awards, conference

Come celebrate 30 years with us in sunny Albuquerque where we invite you to
