Urban Culture Area, Mid-Atlantic Popular Culture/American Culture Association.
In previous years, the Urban Culture area entertained the city of the past, the city of the present, and the city of the future, respectively. This year, the Urban Culture area would like to explore the intriguing and intricate relationship between the everyday and the ceremonial in the city. Presentations about mundane, extraordinary, or scheduled occurrences, histories, and places are welcome. We seek historical or ethnographic studies of cities, poetic accounts of personal geographies through cities, and explorations of highly orchestrated or surprisingly improvised events in designated areas in the city.
If interested in participating in a workshop on “writing the urban,” in addition to presenting a paper, please, indicate so. Former writing workshops focused on city places, city characters, and city food.
Please, send your 1-page paper abstracts and 1-paragraph recent bios as virus-free, Word attachments to Blagovesta Momchedjikova, firstname.lastname@example.org, by June 30th, 2007. This year, the Mid-Atlantic Popular Culture/American Culture Association meets in Philadelphia, PA, November 2-4th, 2007. For more information, check:
