The Southwest/Texas Popular Culture and American Culture Associations
will hold their annual meeting in Albuquerque, New Mexico, February 13-
16, 2008. Proposals are now being accepted for panels on Reality
Television.
Previous years’ presentations have explored the place of reality
television in modern culture; the ways in which reality television
programs are shaped as narratives; the development of reality television
programs as genres; the psychological, sociological, and philosophical
appeal of reality television; the ways in which reality television series
subvert and/or reinforce cultural, regional, and gender stereotypes; the
genesis, development (and decline?) of the reality television program;
and, the application of literary critical approaches to unpack reality
television programs.
Topics not included here are also welcome.
