CFP: "Horror," February 19-22, 2014, Albuquerque, New Mexico
CALL FOR PAPERS
35th Annual Conference of the Southwest Popular/American Culture Association (SWPACA) at the Hyatt Regency Hotel & Conference Center on February 19-22, 2014 in Albuquerque, New Mexico
The area chair for Horror of the Southwest Popular/American Culture Association invites all interested scholars to submit papers on any aspect of horror in literature, film, television, digital and online as well as general culture.
Given the strong showing of work on horror cinema in recent years, we hope to continue this tradition, but also to diversify into new and unconventional areas, especially with the addition of roundtable sessions on a variety of popular topics.
Particularly encouraged are presentations that fit this year's conference theme, "Popular and American Culture Studies: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow."
If you are interested in being a presenter, please send a detailed abstract (300-400 words) for a paper of 15 to 20 minutes reading time. Please provide contact information, such as name, mailing address, phone number, and especially e-mail address.
If you want to propose a panel of four speakers, or three speakers and one respondent, please include the following information: panel title; name and contact information of the panel chair; an abstract for each paper; contact information for each presenter.
The deadline for submissions is November 1, 2013.
