The 29th Annual Meeting of the SW/TX ACA/PCA

February 13th – 16th 2008

Hyatt Regency Albuquerque,
Albuquerque, New Mexico 87102

Proposal/Abstract Deadline: November 15, 2007

Panels are now being formed for the 29th annual meeting of the
Southwest-Texas American Culture Association-Popular Culture
Association in the area of Philosophy and Popular Culture. The
conference is an excellent place to meet people in your area of work
and gives graduate students a space in which to showcase their
research and receive constructive feedback. This year, thanks to
suggestions from previous participants, we have increased the
audio-visual resources available to presenters to include: digital
video projector, vcr/dvd player and stereo speakers in each
presentation room along with wireless internet access at Phil's
cybercafé.

Possible topics include but are not limited to:

o Theories of popular culture
o Elements of popular culture analysis
o Issues of identity and popular culture
o Conceptual entities of identity and popular culture
o Issues of race, ethnicity, class, gender, sexuality, cultural
imperialism, censorship and popular culture
o Philosophical issues explored in popular culture
o Views of philosophy in popular culture
o Philosophical frameworks engaged in popular culture (e.g. Cartesian
mind-body dualism in the Matrix Trilogy)
o Epistemology and Popular Culture
o Phenomenology and Popular Culture

Or any intersection between philosophical issues and popular culture.

For information about the conference and other presentation areas,
graduate paper awards, A/V support in presentation rooms, registration
