CFP: Literature and Popular Culture – Northeast Popular & American Culture Association

The Literature and Popular Culture area for the 2024 Northeast Popular & American Culture Association conference is accepting paper and panel proposals from faculty and graduate students. NEPCA’s 2024 hybrid annual conference will be held from Thursday, October 3-Saturday, October 5, 2024. Virtual sessions will take place on Thursday evening and Friday morning via Zoom, and in-person sessions will take place at Nichols College in Dudley, Massachusetts on Friday evening and Saturday morning. More information on the conference can be found here: https://nepca.blog/2024-conference-page/  

250-word abstracts are due by June 15, 2024.

The NEPCA Literature and Popular Culture area welcomes papers that analyze and evaluate the connections between popular culture and literature, understood broadly.  How does popular culture inform and/or react to literature, and what are the implications for that relationship? 

Presentations can discuss many different theoretical and disciplinary perspectives.  Possible topics include but are not limited to:

·         Analyses of individual/multiple works that engage with popular culture.

·         Intersections of popular culture and literature.

·         Retelling of works of literature in popular culture media.

·         Publication, reception and audience of literature and popular culture.

·         Popular culture trends in literature.

·         Literary genres and how they are explored in popular culture.

·         Any other topics that bring together these two areas.

Please submit paper proposals of 250 words via the paper proposal form available on the NEPCA website (https://docs.google.com/forms/u/0/d/e/1FAIpQLSd-TZ5oJbxf0LiXL6weNtvdN0ejqwoS6PbDx09famPbuGCY4A/viewform?usp=sf_link&pli=1) by June 15, 2024 at 11:59 pm.  Please ensure that your proposal is jargon-free and understandable to a broad audience.
