The Indigenous Studies area of the Midwest Popular Culture Association seeks panel and paper proposals for the annual Midwest Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association conference, this year to be held Friday, October 11 through Sunday, October 13, 2013, at the St. Louis Union Station Hotel in St. Louis, MO.
The area seeks papers that address any aspect of Indigenous, Aboriginal, and First Nations popular culture. The area highly encourages comparative papers between Indigenous and, say, Asian, Hispanic, Pacific Islander, or African popular cultures.
Topics might address, but are not in any way limited to the following:
Television and New Media
Video Games, Blogging, YouTube
Comic books and Cartoons
Theater, Festivals, Spectacles, and Ceremonies
Indigeneity and Aboriginality
Ethnicity and Nationhood
Gender and Sexuality
Diaspora and Transnationality
Submissions should be made electronically via the online submission system (http://submissions.mpcaaca.org/). Deadline for receipt of proposals is April 30, 2013.
Graduate students are invited to apply for competitively awarded travel grants from MPCA/MACA. Undergraduate students should enter our undergraduate paper competition.
