The “Horror” Area Chair of the Popular Culture Association invites interested scholars to submit papers on any aspect of horror in literature, cinema, television, or general culture for the 2005 PCA National Convention to be held at the San Diego Marriott Hotel and Marina in San Diego, California. The conference runs from March 23 through March 26, 2005.
If you are interested in being a presenter, please send a 100-250 word abstract, including title, through email or regular mail. You may send as a Word attachment or in the body of the email. You may also send a completed paper of not more than 15 minutes reading time. Please provide your contact information (name, institutional mailing address, phone numbers, and email) as well.
If you would like to propose a panel of 4 speakers each, please include the following:
Name and contact information for the Panel Chair
Titles and abstracts of each paper
Contact information for each presenter
You may also propose a discussion panel of between 4-6 participants.
All presenters must be members of the PCA and must register for the conference. Membership and registration forms will be sent to you upon acceptance of your presentation.
Acceptance of your paper obligates you to present the paper at the conference. Multiple submissions to different areas are not allowed. You must also be present at the conference to read your own paper—no “readings by proxy” are allowed.
I also urge you to bring 25 copies of your paper to be sold at the conference. Proceeds go to the PCA Endowment Fund.
You are highly encouraged to enhance your presentation through audio-visuals. Each conference room will be equipped with a DVD player. No other equipment is available.
If you have specific days and times at which you would like to present, please let me know at the time of submission. I will forward your request to the schedulers. Please be aware that not all requests can be honored.
The deadline for submission of abstracts and/or papers is NOVEMBER 1, 2004.
