The Northeast Popular/American Culture Association (NEPCA) is seeking paper proposals in the area of Ethnic and Race Studies for its annual conference on Friday, October 21 and Saturday, October 22, 2016 at Keene State College, Keene, NH.

NEPCA conferences seek to be those where graduate students, junior faculty, independent researchers, and senior faculty convene as equals. NEPCA prides itself on offering intimate and nurturing sessions in which new ideas and works-in-progress can be aired, as well as completed projects. Papers are generally 15-20 minutes in length. NEPCA encourages creative delivery of papers, though they can also be read.

Both individual papers and complete panels will be considered. NEPCA Fall Conference information, including the online proposal form, can be found at NEPCA's website for the 2016 conferencehttps://nepca.wordpress.com/2016-conference/ .  Please send a 1-2 page proposal and a one-page vita to the Program Chair Karen Honeycutt (khoneycutt@keene.edu) and to Sally Hirsh-Dickinson (shirshdickinson@rivier.edu), Area Chair for Ethnic and Race Studies. The deadline for proposals is June 15, 2016.
