Conference of the Popular and American Culture Association (PCA/ACA)
April 20 – April 23, 2011 -- San Antonio, TX
One of the largest and most vibrant of the association, the Science Fiction and Fantasy (SF/F) Area invites proposals for its 2011 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).
The 2011 conference will be held in conjunction with the Southwest/Texas PCA/ACA. Anyone interested in submitting a paper for the conference is encouraged to check out their website to determine if a call for a specific topic (e.g., Doctor Who) within the area has been posted. Their address is: http://swtxpca.org/. Follow the links located at the top of the page to access the science fiction and fantasy area chairs.
PCA/ACA SF/F welcomes 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. Though not at all an exhaustive list, potential presenters may wish to consider the following. We would particularly like to encourage submissions for 2011 that examine Ethnicity, Race and Otherness and Writing, Direction and Production.
