The theme for the 36th annual SWPACA conference is “Many Faces, Many Voices: Intersecting Borders in Popular and American Culture.” We invite proposals for individual or panel presentations that consider the theme as it relates to rhetoric and technical communication. We’re excited to hear about the ways in which popular and American culture inform the pedagogical, theoretical, and practical work of rhetoric and technical communication. Feel free to interpret the conference theme broadly.

Proposals for individual presentations should not exceed 250 words. Multi-paper panel proposals must include separate abstracts and titles for each individual proposed paper.

Submission deadline: 1 November 2014

Notifications of acceptances will be given on a rolling basis.
