2nd Call for Papers - New England Studies. The 2014 Popular Culture Association Conference will be held in Chicago, Illinois, April 16-19. The New England Studies Area invites presentations on any aspect of New England popular culture: Film; Literature; Politics; History; Music; Food; Sports; Celebrities; Entertainment; Gambling/Casinos; Fishing Industry; and numerous other topics.
Since there has been much national focus on Boston in the past year, Boston-based topics such as the following might be of special interest: Films made in the Boston area; Infamous figures such as Whitey Bulger or the Boston Strangler; Boston Marathon tragedy/"Boston Strong"; Boston sports teams; and Boston politics. Several papers have been received on these Boston-related topics, more are encouraged!)
Please submit a proposal to only one area at a time. All proposals and abstracts must be submitted through the PCA Database. Presentations should be 15-20 minutes in length and lively in nature! The deadline for the submission of a 200-word abstract is November 1, 2013 (earlier than usual)! Acceptance will be earlier than usual as well to enhance your ability to seek funding. All proposals should be submitted to the PCA Database (also, please cc me at firstname.lastname@example.org); include university affiliation (if applicable), telephone number, and e-mail address. Graduate students welcome. Individual and full panel proposals are considered. Please feel confident about attendance if you are accepted.
