DEADLINE: November 1, 2019

Abstracts of papers, individual proposals, and/or panel proposals dealing with the intersection of the body and culture are now being accepted.  The Body and Culture Area encourages interdisciplinary dialogue over the body as text, both literal and discursive, and how the body’s production of meaning is socially, culturally, historically, and politically located.  Papers may address the meanings culture writes onto bodies, the origin of those meanings, and the impact those meanings have on bodies so inscribed. 

Papers across disciplines, cultural contexts, and historical periods are welcome. Papers from scholars and practitioners are welcome, and full panels are especially encouraged to apply. Abstracts should be submitted to the PCA/ACA website at https://pcaaca.org/help/conference/submitting-proposals-conference.

 

All presenters must be current, paid members of the PCA and fully registered for the conference.
