Memory and Representation area of PCA/ACA 2023
MEMORY AND REPRESENTATION
CALL FOR PAPERS
The Memory and Representation area of the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association invites submissions on any pertinent topic (see description below) for the 2023 National Conference in San Antonio, Texas, April 5-8, 2023.
Memory and Representation: Area Description
This area concerns the relationship between memory and the various means of representation that construct, preserve, and convey the past. In this context, memory refers to the way in which the past continues to survive in the present, implicitly and explicitly, and is transmitted into the future. The diverse means of representation – whether in the form of literature, cinema, photography, or visual culture at large, including television and digital media – have an essential role in keeping memory alive, in both structuring and transforming it. Against this backdrop, this area welcomes individual and session proposals that address the themes, concepts, or historical perspectives related to the intersection of memory, representation, and culture generally.
Submissions for paper proposals are now open. The submission deadline is December 20, 2022. Please be sure you read and understand all instructions, policies, and procedures before you submit your proposal.
For individual papers in Memory and Representation, you are invited to submit a 200-300 word abstract or proposal online: SUBMIT
Please include your full name, affiliation, status (graduate student, educator, independent scholar), mailing address, email address, and telephone number.
Sessions are scheduled in 1½ hour slots, typically with three or four papers or speakers per standard session. Should you or any of your colleagues be interested in submitting a session proposal or have any questions, please send inquires by email to [firstname.lastname@example.org]
