February 24-29, 2008

Albuquerque, New Mexico
Hyatt Regency Albuquerque

The 2009 SW/TX PCA/ACA Conference will be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico
at the Hyatt Regency downtown. Join us this year, as a returning or first-
time participant, as we celebrate a new future on Route 66 at this
regional popular culture conference. Further details regarding the
conference (listing of all areas, hotel, registration, tours, etc.) can
be found at

Proposals for both Panels and Individual Papers are now being accepted
for the Rap Music and Hip Hop Culture Area. We had excellent
representation in this Area for 2008, and we are looking to expand in
both quantity and complexity for 2009. This year, we are particularly
interested in proposals that address the following:

- Intersections of Hip Hop and Pedagogy
- Rap Music, Hip Hop Culture, and Space/Place
- Theoretical approaches to Hip Hop (i.e., Language
Theory/Postmodernism/Social Theory)
- Rap, Hip Hop, and Academic Disciplinarity
- Rhetorical Approaches to Rap Music and Hip Hop Culture
- Rap, Hip Hop, and Film/Documentary
- Hip Hop Subjectivities/Agency
- Anthropological/Sociological approaches to Hip Hop Culture
- Economics and Hip Hop Culture
- Discussions of international Hip Hop
- Intersections of Hip Hop and Religion/Theology
- Latino Hip Hop
- Women and Hip Hop

As always, papers and panels that consider the myriad ways that Rap Music
and Hip Hop culture impact and feed upon Popular and American culture are
encouraged. This Area should be construed broadly, and we seek papers
that aren’t afraid to take risks. Proposals from Graduate Students are
particularly welcome, with award opportunities for the best graduate

Please send abstracts of 250 words with relevant audio/visual requests by
November 15, 2008, to Robert Tinajero at the email below. Panel
proposals should include one abstract of 200 words describing the panel,
accompanied by the underlying abstracts of 250 words of the individual
papers that comprise the panel.
