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 by November 1, 2013. Inquiries may be directed to Area Chair Jessica Maerz at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
