Panels now forming on topics related to California Culture: literature, ethnography, film, pop culture, folk culture, history and historical figures, art, artifacts, photography, industries, geography, archeology, journalism, etc. If it has to do with California, we’re interested! Native and Hispanic Cultures in California; California in literature or literature from Californians; California in film, television, recordings, etc.; Car culture, celebrity culture, beat and hip culture, folklore, the list goes on and on. The title of this year’s conference is "Reeling in the Years, 30 Years of Film, Television and Popular Culture." So papers are particularly sought on aspects of film, TV, and popular culture of the last 30 years with an emphasis on the popular culture of 1979.
Scholars, teachers, professionals, and others interested in California are encouraged to participate. Graduate students are particularly welcome with award opportunities for best graduate papers.
If you wish to form your own California-focused panel, I would be glad to facilitate your needs. Also, if your work does not focus on California but fits within the broad range of areas designated for the upcoming conference on American & Popular culture, I still encourage you to participate. Please pass along this call to friends and colleagues.
