The area chair for Horror invites all interested scholars to submit paper proposals on any aspect of horror in literature, film, television, digital and online media, as well as in general culture. Given the strong showing of work on horror cinema and television in recent years, we hope to continue this tradition, but also to diversify into new and unconventional areas, especially with the addition in the last four years of roundtable sessions on a variety of popular topics.


If you are interested in participating in a roundtable event regarding “Horror,” please contact the area chair with questions and suggestions for topics and presenters.

 

All proposals must be submitted through the conference’s database at http://conference.southwestpca.org/southwestpca/  

 

Individual proposals for 15 minute papers must include an abstract of approximately 200-500 words.  Including a brief bio in the body of the proposal form is encouraged, but not required.   

 

For information on how to submit a proposal for a roundtable or a multi-paper panel, please view the above FAQs and Tips page.   

 

In addition, please check out the organization’s peer-reviewed, scholarly journal, Dialogue: The Interdisciplinary Journal of Popular Culture and Pedagogy, at http://journaldialogue.org

If you have any questions about the “Horror” area, please contact its Area Chair, Steffen Hantke, Sogang University, steffenhantke@gmail.com

 

We look forward to receiving your submissions.
