Call for Papers
November 15, 2021
Washington, United States
Subject Fields: 
Communication, Contemporary History, Journalism and Media Studies, Political Science, Popular Culture Studies

Come to Seattle, the home of grunge music, Microsoft, Pike’s Place Market, the Space Needle, the Sea Hawks, and the Seattle Mariners. If the weather is right, you may catch a glimpse of Mount Rainier.

Proposals will be considered for sessions organized around a theme, special panels, and/or individual papers.  Working professionals, scholars, educators, and graduate students are all encouraged to submit.  All presenters must be members of the PCA and must register for the conference.

ACA/PCA is committed to an interdisciplinary approach. Papers that examine particular political campaigns or individuals/operations, the use of electronic and print media either to report on or to promote political events and issues, political language, the use of new media technology such as cell phones/mobiles and the web are some areas of particular interest. Studies that focus on US presidential primaries and previous elections are also welcome. Studies may include press coverage, cartoons, and the response to the electoral process in film and literature. We also welcome studies on the participation of women, gays, Trans genders, African Americans, and minorities in politics

Interested individuals should submit an abstract of no more than 250 words (including presentation title) and complete contact information (name, institutional affiliation, mail and e-mail addresses, and contact telephone number) to the database at http://conference.pcaaca.org.

Queries should be sent to Dr. Hassencahl. The website for online submissions opens September 1, 2021.
