SCIENCE FICTION AND FANTASY AREA
Conference of the Popular and American Culture Association (PCA/ACA)
March 31 – April 3, 2010 St. Louis, MO
One of the largest and most vibrant of the association, the Science Fiction and Fantasy (SF/F) Area invites proposals for its 2010 national conference. The goals of our area are (1) to share and support research, scholarship, and publication and (2) to mentor emerging scholars. As a result, we invite proposals from professors, independent scholars, graduate students, and undergraduates (with the guidance of a professor).
We welcome any theoretical or (inter)disciplinary approach to any topic related to SF/F: art; literature; radio; film; television; comics and graphic novels; video, role-playing, and multi-player online games.
Submission Guidelines: In Word (.doc/.docx), Rich Text Format (.rtf), or PDF, completed papers or 250-word proposals for individual papers, panels, roundtables, workshops, or creative writing readings should be submitted to Sherry Ginn at the address listed below. The document should contain the following information in this order:
Name(s) of presenter(s)—indicate main contact person if submitting a group presentation
Institutional affiliation—if applicable
Name and contact information of cooperating professor—undergraduates only
Address(es), telephone number(s), and email address(es) of presenter(s)
Title(s) of paper(s), panel, roundtable, or workshop
Completed paper(s) or 250-word proposal(s)—if submitting a workshop, please specifically indicate what those in attendance will gain
The paper/panel proposal will be acknowledged when received, and the sender will be notified of the submission’s status no later than December 2009.
Please, do not simultaneously submit the same proposal to multiple areas. Doing so is a discourtesy to area chairs. Also please note that, per PCA/ACA guidelines, a person may present only one paper at the annual meeting, regardless of subject area.
Submission Deadline: 1 December 2009
Each year after the last conference panel on Saturday evening, the SF/F Area hosts a fundraising event that includes a film, snacks, and a prize raffle of DVDs, novels, academic books, etc.—thousands of dollars in merchandise. Come enjoy the food, friendship, and fun! Location TBA; film tentatively scheduled: Aliens.
