We are seeking paper proposals and proposals for panels in the area of computer culture for the 26th annual meeting of Southwest Texas Popular Culture and American Culture Associations, to be held at Albuquerque, New Mexico, February 9-12, 2005.
Please email (address shown below) a short abstract (one paragraph), with paper title, and brief biographical note by December 1, 2004.
Graduate students are welcome, and presenters need not be experts in the area of inquiry. Computer culture is still a new and developing academic field. This is a popular culture conference, so practitioners are welcome as well as scholars. Presentations may be creative, scholarly, theoretical, or simply informative.
Panel proposals may address any topic in the broad field of computer culture.
Paper proposals should address, at least tangentially, one of the following topics:
Online News Sites
Politics and the Web/Politics of the Web
Online Sports Sites
Personal Home Pages
The Ebay Phenomenon
Computers and Film (film criticism or production)
E-Publishing (e-zines, et al.)
Computers and Pedagogy
The conference, which has become national in scope, is energetic and friendly. The atmosphere is informal.
I look forward to hearing from you.
Professor Joseph R. Chaney
Area Chair, Computer Culture
Southwest Texas PCA/ACA
