With apologies for cross-posting.

Shakespeare and Popular Culture at
The Mid-Atlantic Popular/American Culture Association Annual Conference
Hyatt Regency, New Brunswick, NJ
November 4-6, 2005

Shakespeare may be considered the highest of high culture, but he is
firmly in the realm of popular culture as well, existing, apparently
happily, in films, comic books, rock lyrics and TV commercials. The
Shakespeare in Popular Culture area invites projects that examine and
describe the integration of Shakespeare and North American culture,
including but not limited to: festivals, fiction, advertising, comic
books, music, theatre, television and film. Papers can examine not only
what these appropriations and adaptations say about Shakespeare, but
also about North American popular culture. Proposals that examine the
pedagogical issues of negotiating between Shakespearean texts and
popular interpretations are also welcomed.

To submit a proposal, please send a 150-word abstract (include AV needs
VCR/monitor or carousel projectors/ screens only) and a brief bio or CV
to Annalisa Castaldo, at
