Motor Culture and the Road, Southwest Popular / American Culture 35th Annual Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico, February 19-22, 2014.
Join us for the 35th annual conference just steps away from Route 66 for an engaging, interdisciplinary investigation of the increasingly popular and diverse representations of mobility and our culture(s). Our goal is to leave the conference with a broader understanding of the past, current, and future potentialities of motor culture and the road, the emerging pedagogy in this area, new methodologies for studying motor culture and the road, and our roles as citizens in this culture. SWPACA welcomes scholars at all levels. Graduate students are encouraged to submit proposals. SWPACA awards a number of monetary awards for the best graduate student papers in a variety of categories, which can be viewed at: http://southwestpca.org/conference/graduate-student-awards/. Additionally, the Associationís inaugural issue of the journal, Dialogue: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Popular Culture and Pedagogy, will be debuted at the conference. Possible topics include, but are not limited to: Car Culture, Motorcycle Culture, Nostalgia, Video games, Travelogues, Environmental impacts and Ecological issues, fiction, radio and art.
