Possible topics include (but are not limited to):

- Literature
- Book History/Print Cultures
- Dime novels
- Politics
- Sports
- Religion
- Westward expansion
- Native Americans
- Women in popular culture
- Entertainment
- The Gothic

Send a 250-word abstract along with full contact information to panel chair, Patrick Prominski (promins2@msu.edu). Be sure to include MPCA/MACA in the subject header. Deadline for submissions is April 30, 2011.
