Call for Papers:
The American Civil War and Reconstruction
Panels are now forming on topics involving The American Civil War and Reconstruction area for the Southwest/Texas Popular and American Culture Associations Annual Conference, which will be held February 9-12, 2005 (Wednesday through Saturday) at the Hyatt Regency Albuquerque, Albuquerque.
Paper topics may examine any aspect of how the Civil War and Reconstruction have influenced, or been influenced by, any aspect of culture, of course–but they may also explore any aspect or “reading” of the War and our experience with it. Past presentations have included such diverse topics as literature, film, art, newspapers and journalistic history, battle reenactments, revisioning history and historiography (competing histories), the politics of military command, women’s narratives, folk history and remembrance, veterans’ issues, the rhetoric of memorials, Abraham Lincoln, African-American narratives and fiction, the War and material culture, music and popular poetry, memoir and personal histories, and internecine conflict. We are particularly interested in sessions on battle reenactment.
Sessions run for ninety minutes, and each presenter receives fifteen minutes, depending on the number of papers in each panel. Please plan to stay within this time limit. Graduate students are especially welcome to submit proposals. Whole panel proposals will also be considered.
Deadline for submissions is December 1, 2004. Please include in your proposal your address, school affiliation, e-mail address, fax number, and telephone number.
Please send an abstract of 150-250 words to:
