Now that the end of the semester grading frenzy is behind us, faculty and graduate students are invited to think ahead to the cool days of Fall, when the Northeast Popular/American Culture Association (NEPCA) will hold its annual conference in Providence (October 24-25). We welcome proposals on a wide range of themes in popular and American culture. A copy of our general call for papers appears below, along with information about area chairs. We welcome proposals for both individual papers and panels.
2014 CALL FOR PAPERS: Northeast Popular/American Culture Association
The Northeast Popular/American Culture Association is seeking papers on popular and American culture, broadly construed, for its annual fall conference to be held on Friday October 24 and Saturday October 25, 2014 on the campus of Providence College in Providence, RI. NEPCA prides itself on holding conferences which emphasize sharing ideas in a non-competitive and supportive environment. We welcome proposals from graduate students, junior faculty, and senior scholars. NEPCA conferences offer intimate and nurturing sessions in which new ideas and works-in-progress can be aired, as well as completed projects.
NEPCA Fall Conference information, including the paper proposal form, can be found at http://nepca.wordpress.com/fall-conference/. Please complete the form with abstract and send to the 2014 Program Chair Bob Hackey (firstname.lastname@example.org) and to the appropriate Area Chair. For a complete list of area chairs, please visit the NEPCA web site:http://nepca.wordpress.com/fall-conference/nepca-area-chairs/. Both proposals for individual papers and complete panels will be considered. The deadline for proposals is Monday, June 9, 2014.
Providence College is located in Providence, RI, a vibrant small city with a lively arts district and scores of award-winning restaurants. The 105 acre PC campus is not far from I-95. We hope to see you in Providence this fall! To cap off a wonderful weekend, Providence will host a WaterFire performance on Saturday night—right after our conference! If you've never attended, see www.waterfire.org for more details. So if you've been thinking about submitting a conference proposal, now's the time to send it in! NEPCA is still accepting proposals in all areas.
