CFP Paranormal Literature, Television, and Film Special Topic Panel(s) in Vampire in Literature, Culture and Film Area of The National Popular Culture and American Culture Association Annual Conference 2012 (April 11-14, 2012)
The Vampire in Literature, Culture, and Film Area of PCA/ACA is soliciting papers and/or roundtable panels for special topic panel(s) on the larger area of paranormal literature, television, and film.
These special topic panels will allow participants to discuss the wider issues of paranormal creatures—beyond vampires. Were-creatures, ghosts, witches, gods, demons, and angels are playing with each other on the playground of today’s literature, television, and film. These creatures transverse literary and digital genres while blending the things that go bump in the night or rattle their chains throughout eternity. Papers and/or roundtables may address any aspect of paranormal literature, television, and film.
As this area is meant to expand the field of study, please note that any paper focusing on solely vampires should be submitted the Vampire in Literature, Culture, and Film Area.
Please send 250-300 word abstract to Melissa Anyiwo, Curry College,
firstname.lastname@example.org or Amanda Hobson, Ohio University, email@example.com. Submissions are due by Thursday, December 15, 2011
