For conference information, please go to http://www.pcaaca.org/national-conference/

DEADLINE:  November 1, 2020

Come to Boston, the scene of key events of the American Revolution, the home of the JFK Presidential Library and Museum, a city that supports the arts and sports,  and domicile of endangered species such as the Boston Globe.

Proposals will be considered for sessions organized around a theme, special panels, and/or individual papers.  Sessions are scheduled in 1½-hour slots, typically with four papers or speakers per standard session.  Presentations should not exceed 15 minutes. Working professionals, scholars, educators, and graduate students are all encouraged to submit. Discussion panels of 4-6 participants each are also encouraged. All potential presenters must be members of the PCA at the time of submission of abstracts for consideration and if the proposal is accepted must register for the conference.

ACA/PCA is committed to an interdisciplinary approach. Papers that examine particular political campaigns or individuals/operations, the use of electronic and print media either to report on or to promote political events and issues, political language, the use of new media technology such as cell phones/mobiles and the web are some areas of particular interest. Studies that focus on US presidential primaries and previous elections are also welcome. Studies may include press coverage, cartoons, and the response to the electoral process in film and literature. We also welcome studies on the participation of women, gays, Transgenders, African Americans, and minorities in politics

Interested individuals should submit an abstract of no more than 250 words (including presentation title) and complete contact information (name, institutional affiliation, mail and e-mail addresses, and contact telephone number) to the database at http://conference.pcaaca.org.

Queries should be sent to Dr. Hassencahl. The website for online submissions opens August 1, 2020.
