SW/TX Popular and American Culture Association
31st Annual Conference February 10-13, 2010
Papers sought on all aspects of Visual Arts in the West: photography, painting, drawing, graphic media, sculpture, mixed media works and installations, video, digital media, architecture, urban planning and design, indigenous art, museum studies, special collections, online collections, public arts, and more. The West is defined very broadly to include everything west of the Mississippi River in the United States, Alaska and Western Canada.
Particular interest in the arts of working-class or labor-related art works. Topics may include but are not limited to:

The SW/TX PCA/ ACA also invites papers for one of its 70+ Area offerings in American Studies, Literature, Film, Television, Science Fiction and Fantasy, Ethnic and Gender Studies, Ecocriticism, Southwest Culture, Western Studies, Writing Pedagogy, Creative Writing, and many more.
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 travel, lodging, and the organization can be found on our website:
