The theme for the 35th annual SWPACA conference is “Popular and American Culture Studies: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow.” We invite proposals for individual or panel presentations that consider the theme as it relates to rhetoric and technical communication. How does culture influence the work of rhetoric and/or technical communication? How has/does/will culture affect our theoretical and pedagogical choices? What changes in culture do we need to understand in order to be more productive
scholars and more effective teachers? Feel free to interpret the conference theme broadly.
Proposals for individual presentations should not exceed 250 words. Multi-paper panel proposals must include separate abstracts and titles for each individual proposed paper.
Submission deadline: 1 November 2013
How to submit: online, via http://conference2014.southwestpca.org/ (All proposals must be submitted to the database. No email submissions.)
Notifications of acceptances will be given on a rolling basis. Questions about the Rhetoric & Technical
Communication area? Contact Meagan Rodgers at firstname.lastname@example.org
