PCA/ACA

Stephen King

Primary tabs

The co-chairs of the Stephen King Area—Philip Simpson (Eastern Florida State College) and Rebecca Frost (Independent Scholar)—are soliciting papers, presentations, panels and roundtable discussions which cover any aspect of Stephen King’s fiction and film for the Annual National Joint Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association Conference to be held in San Antonio, TX from April 5th to April 8th, 2023.  Papers, presentations, and panels can cover King’s experimentation with medium (e-books, graphic novels, TV series), his more recent fictions, including his Dark Tower series or the Bill Hodges trilogy, and anything in between. Indeed, feel free to view past programs of the PCA/ACA conference at www.pcaaca.org to see what has been covered during recent conferences.

 

To have your proposal/abstract considered for presentation, please submit your proposal/abstract of approximately 250 words through the PCA/ACA Database—http://ncp.pcaaca.org/ — by November 30th, 2022.  Here you will submit your paper proposal/abstract and also provide your name, institutional affiliation, and contact information, and you will be asked to become a member of the Popular Culture Association at this time as well (with payment for conference registration coming after acceptance of your paper/presentation).  Responses/decisions regarding your proposals will be provided within two weeks of your submission to ensure timely replies.  Of course, should you have any questions specific to the Stephen King Area, please send an e-mail to [email protected] and we will be happy to assist you. 

 

Complete panel proposals of 3-4 people are also welcomed, as are proposals for roundtable discussions with two or more featured speakers and a moderator. For more information, visit the PCA/ACA at www.pcaaca.org.
