The Northeast Popular/American Culture Association is seeking papers on the topic of digital media for its annual fall conference to be held on the campus pf Colby-Sawyer College in New London, NH October 30-31, 2015. NEPCA prides itself on holding conferences which emphasize sharing ideas in a non-competitive and supportive environment. We welcome proposals from graduate students, junior faculty, and independent and senior scholars. NEPCA conferences offer intimate and nurturing sessions in which new ideas and works-in-progress can be aired, as well as completed projects.

For the video gaming and digital media area, we are especially interested in papers using concepts from literary and cultural theory to critique / analyze / explore video games and other non-linear visual and digital media. However, all papers on digital media will receive full consideration.

Some paper titles from last year's panel:

"Three Spaces of Combat: Deleuze and Virtual Tactics"
"The Descent of Gerard Genette and the Rise of Ken Levine"
"Pixelated Feminism: The Evolution of Women in Gaming"

Cain, Ph.D. (cainj@sacredheart.edu). Please be sure to include the acronym NEPCA in the email subject line. The current deadline for proposals is June 15th, 2015, but earlier is better.
