CFP: [Cultural-Historical] Urban Studies (4/30/08; MPCA/ACA; 10/3-5/08)

full name / name of organization: 
Brendan Kredell

Midwest PCA/ACA Conference
October 3-5, 2008
Cincinnati, OH

Proposals are now being accepted in the area of Urban Studies for the 2008
MPCA/ACA annual conference. Papers may include any and all topics related
to the field of urbanism, but given the nature of the conference, should
work at the interface of urban studies and popular culture. Proposals are
especially welcome that root their analyses of popular culture texts in the
historical and theoretical specificities of particular places and spaces.

Proposals may be submitted individually or as part of suggested panels. For
consideration, please send a 250-word abstract by April 30. Electronic
submissions are strongly preferred and should be sent to Brendan Kredell at
b-kredellATnorthwesternDOTedu. If you must send hard copies, the mailing
address is: Brendan Kredell, Department of Radio-TV-Film, Northwestern
University, Evanston IL 60201. (Note that any materials submitted by post
must arrive by April 30 in order to be considered for inclusion.) Please
include name/affiliation, address (email and postal), phone number and A/V
requirements (if any). In addition, feel free to contact me in advance of
the formal submission deadline to discuss proposed paper topics, especially
if you intend to submit as part of a proposed panel.
