The Northeast Popular/American Culture Association (NEPCA) is pleased to issue a call for papers for its fall conference. NEPCA invites proposals on a wide array of topics pertaining to popular and American culture, broadly construed.

The 2013 NEPCA conference will meet on the campus of Saint Michael’s College in Colchester, Vermont, October 25–26. The deadline for proposals is June 10, 2103.

Since 1974 NEPCA has invited scholars from New England and New York to be part of an expanding intellectual community. Our annual conferences strive to obtain a balance of graduate students, independent scholars, and full-time faculty members. They are designed to be nurturing conferences where works in progress share intellectual space with established scholarship. NEPCA conferences are also affordable for all.

Email one copy of your proposal (maximum 250 words) and a one page vita to the Program Chairs, Robert Niemi; rniemi@smcvt.edu and Jennifer Tebbe-Grossman: Jennifer.Tebbe@mcphs.edu. A second copy may also be emailed to the appropriate area chair (Comics and Graphic Novels Area Chair: Lance Eaton lance.eaton@gmail.com). Area chairs and other conference information can be found on the NEPCA Website: http://nepca.wordpress.com/fall-conference/
