The Civil War and Reconstruction Area of the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association is calling for papers on the American Civil War and Reconstruction for its national meeting, April 15-18, 2020 (Wednesday through Saturday), in Washington, DC. Papers are welcome from a range of disciplines, and may explore any topic or "reading" of the War. Past presentations have included such diverse subject areas as literature, photography, art, newspapers and journalistic history, counterfactual history, battle reenactments, music, Civil War politics, battle narratives, guerilla warfare, film, historiographical issues, women's narratives, women in combat, war games, secession politics, African-Americans at war, Veterans’ organizations, modern pop culture, battlefield preservation, and material culture. Suggested special topics for this year could include Quakers and other pacifists in wartime, the Gettysburg campaign, Confederate History, monuments and memory, and the popular cultural legacy of the War.
Acceptance of your paper obligates you to appear and make an oral presentation. Sessions run for ninety minutes, and each presenter receives fifteen minutes to present, depending on the number of papers in each panel. Please plan to stay within this time limit. Graduate students are especially welcome to submit proposals—as are undergraduates, with a sponsor. Whole panel proposals are also welcome.
Please send an abstract of 100-250 words to:
