Over the last thirty years there has been an increasing interest in media, arts, and culture as means to understand the national experience. The complexity of social, political, and economic ideas represented in comic books, videogames, online media have joined studies of television, film, and music to further complicate the “high” versus “low” culture debate that have defined academic inquiry. The Media, Arts and Culture (SIS) of the Florida Conference of Historians welcomes presentations that explore topics related to media and culture that seek to consider these vibrant changes. Papers and panels exploring comic books, fandom, film, television, media studies, technology, literature, and music are invited. In addition, the Media, Arts, and Culture SIS also encourages papers and panels that discuss innovative approaches for teaching, discuss the successful implementation of pedagogical practice or explore pressing pedagogical challenges in the classroom.
