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.
Details about the conference, including information about conference travel and graduate student awards, can be found at www.southwestpca.org.
