CALL FOR PAPERS: Albuquerque, New Mexico, February 13-16, 2008

Computer Culture Area panels

Southwest/Texas Popular Culture and American Culture Associations 29th
Annual Meeting http://www.h-net.org/~swpca/

The Computer Culture Area welcomes paper and panel proposals on the
following and related topics: representations of race, ethnicity, and
nationality on the Web; the rhetoric of racist Web sites; terrorism and
the Internet; race, ethnicity, and Internet video;
cultural/social/political groups and Web access.

The papers should be more than merely descriptive. Research and analysis
may be pursued from any humanities, social science, tech, or arts
perspective. The conference, which began as a regional meeting, is
currently national--even international--in scope. Graduate students and
independent scholars and artists are always welcome.

Email proposals, by November 28, 2007, to:

For Paper Proposals:

Submit a 150-word abstract embedded in the body of an email. Include
contact information (postal and preferred email address, phone and fax
numbers) and a biographical note. (We do not require participants to
demonstrate expertise in the area. Because these are relatively new
research fields, we wish to encourage broad participation.)

For Panel and Other Proposals, such as Performances:

Feel free to query first. Panel proposals should include all of the
information requested for individual paper proposals, as well as a 100-
word statement of the panel’s rationale and any noteworthy organizational
features and audio-visual requirements.

[Note: proposals on topics related to video and computer game studies
should be submitted to Judd Ruggill, Department of Media Arts, University
