Conference Call for papers

Midwest Popular Culture/American Culture Association have two calls for papers that might work for some Worn Through readers: VISUAL CULTURE and FASHION are both looking for submissions. I went last year and while I was a tad disappointed at the low turn out per room, in all reality the conference had a fairly high turn-out, it was just perhaps over-divided and therefore highly splintered. But, it’s a good presentation opportunity and the meals etc are good times to mingle with people in the field. Also, even though it’s midwest, I met people from all over the country.

 

 

The 2008 conference of the Midwest Popular Culture/American Culture American Culture Association will be held in Cincinnati, Friday-Sunday, October 3-5, 2008. The call for papers I saw was confusing in that it gave two emails and two submission dates, so it’s either April 25 or April 30, 2008 and the contact is either Joy Sperling@denison.edu or sperling@denison.edu. I’d say just email her to find out details.

 

I won’t be there this year as I plan to attend ITAA in Shaumburg (outside Chicago) only a month later.
