The Adolescence in Film and Television Area Chair seeks individual-paper proposals for presentation at the 2012 National Convention of the Popular Culture Association and American Culture Association, to be held in Boston, Massachusetts from Wednesday, April 11 through Saturday, April 14, 2012.
Submissions that explore noteworthy coverage patterns, representations, and themes pertaining to the portrayal of adolescence/adolescents in film and television, during any historical era, are desired from scholars, educators, and students at all levels.
Possible topics of relevance to this call for papers include, but are certainly not limited to, advertising images and appeals, coming-of-age narratives, drug use, HIV/AIDS, juvenile delinquency, non-heterosexuality, premarital sex, violence and social aggression, and (losing one’s) virginity.
Interested individuals are asked to submit an abstract of no more than 250 words (including presentation title) and complete contact information by December 15, 2011 at: http://ncp.pcaaca.org
