The Mid-Atlantic Popular and American Culture Association is accepting proposals until June 30 for their 2022 conference, Nov 10 - 12, in Princeton, NJ. General guidelines can be found at Please consider submitting to the newly founded Gothic Studies area:  The Gothic Studies area invites proposals which engage with the genre and culture of the Gothic as it is represented in film, television, literature, art, and society. We are especially interested in ways that the Gothic aesthetic defines itself against other predominate modes, or genres, of storytelling or culture. We also invite proposals concerned with subgenres of the Gothic across media, like the American Gothic, southern Gothic, feminine Gothic, the “weird tale,” and the ecoGothic as represented film, television, literature, music, fashion, art, and culture.
