Conference organizers encourage submissions that focus on the popular culture of our host city, Philadelphia. A city of great diversity from the time of its founding more than three centuries ago, Philadelphia has been a trend-setter but also a follower of cultural trends. What is distinctive about Philadelphia’s popular culture? How has Philadelphia made an impact on American popular culture? All areas of interest are welcome, and proposals that highlight Philadelphia sites and collections are encouraged.
To submit a proposal, please send a 200-word abstract and a brief CV/bio by June 15, 2011 to:
Jennifer Erica Sweda
Undergraduates and independent scholars are welcome; panels of 3 or 4 presenters, single papers, roundtables, or alternative formats are encouraged.
*Please note: Presenters may only present 1 paper; please do not submit multiple papers to multiple areas of MAPACA*
