This due date is coming up quick but perhaps one of you has something ready to go:

Announcing a new area for the Mid-Atlantic Popular/American Culture Association’s Annual Conference: Tattoos and Tattooing

Deadline: June 15, 2009 (contact Dr. Lorance if a 1 week extension is needed)

2009 MAPACA conference
Hilton Boston Logan Airport
Boston, MA
Thursday, November 5 – Saturday, November 7, 2009

Here is what the call says:
Do you tattoo? Are tattoos body art? rebellion? personal expression?
clanship? tradition? decadence? reminiscence? invitation to look? disguise?
This session invites discussion of tattoos, their meanings, their creation,
their role/s in our lives. Share your knowledge, tattoos, and techniques.

Undergraduates, graduate students, and professionals are encouraged to
submit proposals for individual papers, full panels, round table
discussions or alternative format
