Memory and Representation

All Proposals & Abstracts Must Be Submitted Through The PCA Website[http://conference.pcaaca.org/]

 

The Memory and Representation area of the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association invites submissions on any pertinent topic (see description below) for the 2021 National Conference, June 2-5, 2021.

 

Memory and Representation: Area Description

This area concerns the relationship between memory and the various means of representation that construct, preserve, and convey the past. In this context, memory refers to the way in which the past continues to survive in the present, implicitly and explicitly, and is transmitted into the future. The diverse means of representation – whether in the form of literature, cinema, photography, or visual culture at large, including television and digital media – have an essential role in keeping memory alive, in both structuring and transforming it. Against this backdrop, this area welcomes individual and session proposals that address the themes, concepts, or historical perspectives related to the intersection of memory, representation, and culture generally.

 

Submissions

For individual papers, you are invited to submit a 100-250 word abstract or proposal online at:  http://conference.pcaaca.org. Proposals must be submitted electronically. Please include your full name, affiliation, status (graduate student, educator, independent scholar), mailing address, email address, and telephone number.

Sessions are scheduled in 1½ hour slots, typically with three or four papers or speakers per standard session. Should you or any of your colleagues be interested in submitting a session proposal or have any questions, please send inquires by email to terry.cochran@umontreal.ca.
