Internet Culture

Primary tabs

The Internet Culture Area of the Popular Culture Association invites proposals for individual papers, panels, roundtables, and alternative format presentations for the 2023 National Conference. Proposals should explore Internet Culture as it relates to popular culture including, but not limited to:

  • Social Media
  • Mobility
  • Apps/Applications
  • Digital Marketing
  • The Internet & Social Change
  • Participatory Culture & the Internet
  • Internet Celebrity & Fame
  • Cross Media Convergence
  • Memes, Trends, & Viral Culture
  • Creative Industries
  • Digital Distribution, Technology, & Ownership
  • Specific Platforms/Sites (TikTok, Snapchat, Reddit, etc.)
  • Local, Global, & Glocal Internet Culture
  • Web Development & Design
  • History, Present State, & Future of the Internet
     

While we recognize that many areas of the PCA/ACA conference deal with issues related to the Internet and Internet culture, the goals of the Internet Culture area are (1) to explore aspects of popular culture that are inherently tied to the Internet, new media communications, emerging technologies, social media, and related areas and (2) to create an interactive environment by embracing the changing nature of conference interactivity to include social media.

 

How to submit: Register for an account on https://pcaaca.org/ and complete the brief bio and affiliation. Then, submit a 250-word proposal to the PCA Database at https://pcaaca.org/conference.
