Call for Papers: MYTHOLOGY and POPULAR CULTURE
2013 Midwest Popular Culture Association Conference
St. Louis, MO
Friday-Sunday, October 11-13, 2013
St. Louis Union Station Hotel
Deadline for Abstracts: April 30, 2012
The Mythology and Popular Culture area of the Midwest PCA invites papers and panels on any aspect of the intersection of myth and popular culture. For example, presenters may wish discuss the role and reconfiguring of religious myth in movies, TV, books or music; alternately, papers may focus on the ways in which popular culture creates new or different mythologies outside of traditional religious discourse.
Please upload 250-word abstract proposals for your panel or individual paper to the Mythology and Popular Culture area, http://submissions.mpcaaca.org/. (Do not send submissions to Area Chair's email.) Include name(s), affiliation(s), and e-mail address(es) with the 250 word abstract, and indicate in your submission whether your presentation will require an LCD Projector.
