CALL FOR PAPERS: ABSTRACTS, PANEL PROPOSALS ON HISTORY AND POPULAR CULTURE
2012 MIDWEST POPULAR CULTURE/AMERICAN CULTURE ASSOCIATION
CONFERENCE – COLUMBUS, OHIO
Renaissance Columbus Downtown Hotel
50 North Third Street
Columbus, Ohio 43215
OCTOBER 12-14, 2012
History and popular culture often seem entwined, whether this tie is developed by investigating history as it is portrayed in film, television, or literature or in the way cities (like Columbus) grow and prosper over time. Both History and Popular Culture are foundational influences on the way people think, develop a world view, and contextualize their surroundings.
Please consider submitting a paper, abstract, or full panel proposal for this inclusive area, particularly given Columbus and Ohio's place in national and global history. All areas, eras, types, and topics that examine the relationship between History and Popular Culture are welcome.
Send paper, abstract (250 words) or panel proposal (including title) on any aspect of History and Popular Culture to:
Bob Batchelor, Ph.D.
