Since the 1970s, the Southwest/Texas PCA/ACA has sought to foster interdisciplinary study of popular and American literary, historical, visual, and other cultural and media texts. We like to think we are a unique organization that pioneered the study of Popular Culture before it was cool. While our offerings have grown over the years to include areas of international study, we still invite scholars and artists to share their perspectives on American life in the diverse region of the Southwest.
Information about our areas of study, graduate student awards, conference travel, lodging, and the organization can be found on our regularly updated website:
Come celebrate 30 years with us in sunny Albuquerque where we invite you to explore Route 66, local pueblos, hiking trails, museums, the Sandia and Isleta casinos, area ski resorts, and nearby Santa Fe.
