DEADLINE: OCTOBER 15, 2005

 

We are considering proposals for sessions organized around a theme, special panels, and/or individual papers. Sessions are scheduled in 1½ hour slots, ideally with four papers or speakers per standard session.

 

If you submit a paper, you will be placed on a panel. The section interests include any aspect of world fairs and international exhibitions, back to 1851: garden expositions,

centennial celebrations, and any aspect of the fair culture. Controversy will not be shunned!

 

The World's Fairs and Expositions section has been an active part of the Popular Culture Association national conferences since 1992 and looks forward to another active and successful meeting in Atlanta 2006. Hope you can join us!
