The Festivals & Faires Area of the Popular Culture Association welcomes submissions for the 2011 PCA/ACA conference in San Antonio, TX (April 20-23, 2011) on any festival or faire—modern or historical. Scholars of theatre / theater, drama, performance studies, American studies, popular culture, religion, history, and non-western traditions are encouraged to apply. Since the conference is in San Antonio, TX, any papers relating to festivals and faires in the city or state are greatly appreciated. Other specific areas of interest for this year’s panels include, but are not limited to:

1. Burning Man
2. Contemporary American Renaissance Festivals & Faires, including performative panels
3. Festivals which reflect or relate to American culture, sub-culture, or counter-culture (broadly defined)
4. Festivals & Faires from outside of Europe and North America
5. Festival atmosphere and environment in non-traditional settings, i.e. conferences, work, school

Inquiries about possible papers or proposals for sessions are also welcomed and encouraged.

If your paper is accepted, you will receive an acceptance letter, registration information, the information you’ll need to join the PCA/ACA, and the room reservation information.
