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 or 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.
