PCA/ACA

Popular History in American Culture

Primary tabs

 

This area welcomes abstracts, single paper proposals and panel proposals on any aspect of popular history in American culture, including, but not limited to, exploration of history beyond a classroom or other academic setting through popular portrayals of historical events, people and/or eras in movies, television, and popular fiction, historically-based leisure activities such as genealogy, quilt and antique collecting and scrapbooking, local history collections and activities, visitorship to historical museums/sites, and heritage tourism. Presentations exploring nostalgia and heritage in popular culture are also encouraged.  

Potential participants need to be active, paid members in order to submit proposals; both membership in PCA/ACA and registration for the conference are required in order to present. 

Please submit (100-250 words) paper proposals, panel proposals (4 speakers and/or discussion panels of 4 participants) or abstracts (including title). 

Paper acceptance obligates participants to present the paper at the conference. Multiple submissions to different areas are not allowed. Please note that you must be present at the conference to read your own paper.
