First Annual Conference, May 2011

The inaugural conference of the Popular Culture Association of Canada  
will be held at the Sheraton Fallsview Hotel and Conference Centre,

We invite proposals for papers and panels (of 3 or 4 papers) from  
scholars and students working in all areas of popular culture studies.

Our definition of popular culture encompasses communicative texts,  
practices and experiences, mediated and unmediated, contemporary and  
historical, Canadian and non-Canadian (including the local and the  

We encourage papers and/or panels on theories of popular culture,  
research methods in popular culture, the teaching of popular culture,  
and any epiphenomena of popular culture, past or present, which might  
fit into the above definition.

Single paper proposals should consist of a title, an abstract of no  
more than 250 words, and a list of keywords or key phrases (maximum  
5), and should be accompanied by a brief biographical note of 100   
words or less.

Panel proposals should include all of the above information for each  
presenter, plus a proposed title for the panel and a brief rationale.

The deadline for proposals is January 15, 2011. The conference  
organizers will endeavor to contact all potential participants by mid- 
February, 2011.

Please send proposals to one of the conference co-chairs (copying  to  
the others would be helpful):

We look forward to welcoming colleagues from across Canada and parts  
of the United States and beyond to Canada's honeymoon and tourist  
capital and centre of a burgeoning wine industry (we plan to organize  
a winery tour for those who are interested). By mid-May, the weather's  
usually pretty good around here.
