CALL FOR PAPERS
The 2014 Popular Culture Association Conference will be held in Chicago,
Illinois, April 16 – April 19. The Children’s Literature and Culture Area
invites presentations on any aspect of children’s and adolescent popular
culture: material culture, media, games, advertising, literature, and so
on—both for children and adults. We are especially interested in recent
films such as The Hunger Games and The Hobbit series.
PCA encourages interdisciplinary approaches to popular culture in its
presentations, which should be 15-20 minutes long. The deadline for
submissions of a 200 word abstract is November 1, 2013 (Note that this is
earlier than it has been in recent years!). Please include your university
affiliation if you have one, your telephone number, and your email address.
ALL PROPOSALS AND ABSTRACTS MUST BE SUBMITTED TO THE PCA DATABASE.
Please do NOT submit papers to more than one session of PCA/ACA at the same
time. Also be sure of having travel funds should your paper be accepted. Do
NOT submit a paper unless you feel confident of attending the conference. No
shows are noted.
Send inquiries to (Note: The actual proposals are to be sent directly to the
PCA online site):
