Call for papers for the Mid-Atlantic Popular/American Culture Association Conference
October 30-November 2, 2008
Niagara Falls, Ontario, Canada
TRAVEL AND TOURISM
Travel and Tourism Studies continues to gain popularity as an academic field, in part because of its inter-disciplinary nature. The Travel and Tourism area seeks papers that explore and discuss any aspect of travel and tourism. Topics for this area include, but are not limited to, the following:
- heritage tourism
- travel and gender/race/class
- material culture and tourism
- writing travel
- spatial relations and tourism
- politics and tourism
- personal travel narratives
Please feel free to consider a wide range of materials and texts. Applicants are encouraged to consider multi-media (or other alternative format) presentations if those formats would better suit their topics, and may also propose 3- or 4-person panels and roundtables.
Send a brief (200-300 words) abstract, including AV needs and bio, by June 15 to Jennifer Erica Sweda at jesweda_at_pobox.upenn.edu (please note the Area Chair information has changed since the 2007 conference). Students (both undergraduate and graduate) and independent scholars are encouraged to apply. Please feel free to send questions via email.
For information about the conference, please see www.mapacagazette.net.
N.B. The 2008 MAPACA conference is in Canada and a valid passport will be required for travel.
