The 6th Annual Ray Browne Conference — Formulas in Flux: Conventions and Adaptability in Popular Culture
The Popular Culture Scholars Association at Bowling Green State University is excited to announce the 6th Annual Ray Browne Conference—Formulas in Flux: Conventions and Adaptability in Popular Culture—to be held Friday, February 15th and Saturday, February 16th, 2019.
The study of popular culture often requires scholars to consider the limits and possibilities of conventions. While the lack of variation from convention in a popular culture piece may facilitate an intimate shared literacy among a community of practitioners, it might also problematically bar diverse voices in favor of an endorsement of the hegemonic and traditional. The Popular Culture Scholars Association invites the academic consideration of such possibilities, negotiations, and limits.
Interested scholars are invited to submit an abstract of no more than 250 words to firstname.lastname@example.org. Individual proposals, pre-formed panels, and creative works are all welcome. Submissions should include the presenter(s)’s name, affiliation, and title; the presentation title; and professional contact information for the presenter(s).
Deadline for submissions is December 1st, 2018.
PLEASE NOTE: While this is primarily a graduate student conference, the PCSA welcomes abstracts from instructors and independent researchers outside of the grad student community.
The 6th Annual Ray Browne conference will take place on Friday, February 15 and Saturday, February 16, 2019. Please check back frequently for conference updates.
