There's still time to submit a proposal for the fall 2019 Northeast Popular/American Culture Association (NEPCA) conference! This particular Call for Papers is for research (including works in progress) related to TELEVISION, but NEPCA has many areas (see below for the NEPCA web site link), so if your paper doesn't fit the Television area, please submit to another area.
NEPCA’s 2019 annual conference will be held from Friday, November 15-Saturday, November 16, 2019 at the Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside Hotel in Portsmouth, NH.
You can find general information about the 2019 conference here: https://nepca.blog/conference/ . For more information on the types of papers that the Television area is open to, please go here: https://nepca.blog/nepca-area-chairs/ . While many papers presented in the Television area in recent years have been textual analyses of various programs (sometimes in comparative or historical perspective) and such papers are always welcome, we are also very open to papers that discuss the political-economy of television, audience reception of television programs (including streaming video), or technological advances and how they are changing the nature of TV and its reception (binge-watching, anyone?).
Please submit your proposal via the online form; the link to the form can be found on the main 2019 conference page (scroll down to the section that begins "Please submit your proposal ..."). Both proposals for individual papers and complete panels will be considered. The deadline for proposals is Saturday, June 1, 2019 (it MAY be extended a couple of weeks, but there is no guarantee!). When you submit your proposal, PLEASE email the Television Area Chair, Karen Honeycutt, firstname.lastname@example.org, at the same time, and note in your email that you have submitted via the official form. (Of course, you may also email her with any pre-submission questions!)
NEPCA prides itself on holding conferences that emphasize sharing ideas in a non-competitive and supportive environment. We welcome proposals from graduate students, junior faculty, and senior scholars. NEPCA conferences offer intimate and nurturing sessions in which new ideas and works-in-progress can be aired, as well as completed projects.
Karen Honeycutt, Television Area Chair
