The Northeast Popular/American Culture Association is seeking papers on popular and American culture, broadly construed, for its annual fall conference to be held on Friday October 26 and Saturday October 27, 2012 on the campus of St. John Fisher College in Rochester, New York. The area of Religion/ Religious Studies welcomes all papers related to themes addressing religion in popular culture but for the 2012 conference papers that discuss religion and politics/ religion and contemporary political culture are especially encouraged.
NEPCA conferences seek to be ones in which graduate students, junior faculty, independent researchers, and senior faculty convene as equals. NEPCA prides itself on offering intimate and nurturing sessions in which new ideas and works-in-progress can be aired, as well as completed projects. Papers are generally 15-20 minutes in length. NEPCA strongly encourages creative delivery of papers, though they can also be read.
Both individual papers and complete panels will be considered. The deadline for applications is June 1, 2012. Please send a 1-2 page paper proposal and a one-page vita to both the Program Chair Tim Madigan firstname.lastname@example.org and to email@example.com , the Area Chair for Religion.
