CFP: Southwest Popular/American Culture Association
Shakespeare in Popular Culture
Feb. 19-22, 2014
The Shakespeare in Popular Culture Area is now accepting proposals for the
Southwest Popular / American Culture Association’s 35th annual conference, which will
be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel and Conference Center in Albuquerque, NM.
This year’s theme is "Popular & American Culture Studies: Yesterday, Today, &
Tomorrow”; we welcome proposals that engage with the overarching conference
theme, as well as those that treat the convergence of Shakespeare, pop culture, and
mediatization more broadly.
Potential topics might include: global Shakespeares; inter- and cross-cultural
Shakespeares; Shakespearean auteurs; digital Shakespeares; screen Shakespeares;
Shakespeare and the digital humanities; and postmodern Shakespeares.
Please submit a CV and 250 word proposal to conference2014.southwestpca.org by
November 1, 2013. Inquiries may be directed to Area Chair Jessica Maerz at
Details about the conference, including information about conference travel and
graduate student awards, can be found at www.southwestpca.org.
