The Northeast Popular/American Culture Association (NEPCA) is seeking paper proposals exploring topics in Politics, Civic Life, and Culture for its annual fall conference to be held on the campus of St. Michaelís College in Colchester, VT during the weekend of October 25-26, 2013.
NEPCA welcomes papers from a wide range of disciplines that explore the role of political actors, discourses, and satire in popular culture. Studies of political rhetoric, representations of politics in the mass media, and shifting public attitudes are particularly welcome. Please send a 250-word proposal via email to the area chair (Bob Hackey: firstname.lastname@example.org) and cc: a copy to the program chairs (Robert Niemi: email@example.com and Jennifer Tebbe-Grossman: Jennifer.Tebbe@mcphs.edu). Proposasl should include a two or three sentence description of yourself, your background, and your qualifications.
NEPCA presentations are generally 20 minutes in length and may be delivered either formally or informally. NEPCA prides itself on holding conferences which emphasize sharing ideas in a non-competitive and supportive environment involving graduate students, junior faculty, and senior scholars.
