Popular Culture Association of America Conference
Boston, 11-14 April, 2012
The Australia and New Zealand Popular Culture Area invites papers for the 2012 conference. We seek papers that focus on popular culture with an Australasian flavour. This encompasses a broad range of topics, not the least being: sports, graphic novels/comics, popular fiction/print cultures, popular science, media/journalism, movies/film/television, food/beverage, design/art, fashion, queer, indigenous, history, celebrity — in fact anything that has an Australasian bent.
The international conference usually has around 3000 attendees so it is an ideal opportunity to network with your overseas colleagues and to pitch your book ideas to the many academic publishers whose editors attend. Also don’t forget to apply for a travel grant, last year several of our people were successful! For more information about the conference go to http://www.pcaaca.org/conference/national.php. For grants go to http://www.pcaaca.org/grant/overview.php.
All papers can be submitted to our journal for publication. Email abstracts (up to 200 words) and panel suggestions (title, presenters and brief description) by 15 December 2011 to Dr Toni Johnson-Woods, President, Popular Culture Association of Australia and New Zealand, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
