From comic books to cookbooks, from horoscopes to horror films, from t-shirts to television, religion finds itself expressed in American popular culture in ways both inventive and derivative. This call for papers seeks potential presenters to form a panel on religion in popular culture, including advertising, entertainment, consumer products, pop literature and music, fashion, and more, for the upcoming American Studies Association Annual Meeting, to be held in Baltimore, Maryland, October 20-23, 2011. Panelists with interests outside of Christianity are especially encouraged to submit proposals. Submissions are encouraged to address the conference theme “"Imagination, Reparation and Transformation." Topics can be historical or contemporary. Potential presenters should send a 250 word abstract of their presentation, including a title; a one-page CV; and details about needed audio-visual support to firstname.lastname@example.org by January 10, 2011.
