CFP: Material Culture Area
Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association 2010 National Conference, St. Louis, Missouri, March 31 - April 3, 2010
The study of material culture offers an exciting area for interdisciplinary research and conversation, as it brings together those engaged in scholarly inquiry in areas as diverse as history, art history, decorative arts, cultural studies, literature, communications, anthropology, and sociology. If your work touches on the study of designed objects and consumer goods, we would love to learn more about it at this year's conference in St. Louis. Graduate students, museum professionals, and public historians are welcome.
Past presentations in this area have focused on decorative arts and the construction of literary characters, the material culture of poverty, commemorative items, historic and modern furnishings and fashion, marketing trends, and a wide range of additional topics.
If you are interested in presenting, or have any questions, please send an abstract of between 100 and 250 words or query by 15 December 2009 to Ella Howard. Email submissions preferred: firstname.lastname@example.org
