Individual papers and panels are now being accepted on topics related to Food and Culture for the 35th annual Southwest Popular/American Culture Association to be held in Albuquerque, NM. Papers and panels that connect to the conference theme, “Popular and American Culture Studies: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow” are welcome, as are
papers and panels that explore other topics connected to food, eating, and cooking in literature, film, and other popular culture (and in American culture in general).
Scholars, graduate students, teachers, and others interested in the intersection of culinary production/consumption and culture are encouraged to participate. Graduate student presenters are eligible for travel fellowships and award opportunities for best papers. Find a list of graduate student awards here:

Please submit 250-350 word abstracts to http://conference2014.southwestpca.org/ by
