Gender Studies

Primary tabs

The Gender Studies area of the Popular Culture Association exploresa broad range of intersections between gender and popular culture, whether within popular culture texts or practices.

 

The Gender Studies area is now considering proposals for papers and/or panels for the 2022 National Conference. Topics could include, but are not limited to, the representation of gender identity and gender expression within popular culture, the use of gendered appeals in advertising, the potential of popular culture to educate audiences about diversity, equity, and inclusion, the role of gender in the Olympics, and the use of gender studies terminology within popular media.

 

Sessions are scheduled in 90-minute slots, typically with four papers or speakers.  Presentations should not exceed 15 minutes.

 

Individuals must be current,  paid members to submit to the conference.

 

Proposals for paper presentations require a 150-200 word abstract.

 

For panels (4-5 presenters), individual presenters should submit an abstract of 150-200 words for their own paper, and the panel chair should contact Dr. O’Reilly to assemble the papers into a panel and provide a brief description of the panel’s focus.

 

To submit a proposal for a paper presentation or a panel, go to http://conference.pcaaca.org and follow the instructions for creating an account (or logging in to an existing account) and completing your submission. Submissions will only be accepted through the PCA website.
