The “Authorship and Auteurism” area of the Midwest Popular Culture Association/Midwest American Culture Association is now accepting proposals for its upcoming conference. The MPCA/MACA conference will be held Friday-Sunday, Oct. 3-5.  We are looking for papers that analyze any aspect of auteur theory or authorship studies. Topics may explore any popular medium or cultural production from any time period or country. 

We are particularly interested in proposals that examine authorship and auteurism:

-in the realm of new media
-in the age of postmodernity and globalization 
-after the “death of the author” 
-as historical, geographical, and/or cultural practices
-in relation to issues of class and economics
-in relation to issues of race and ethnicity 
-in relation to issues of gender and sexuality 

Please submit a paper abstract (250 words) or panel proposal (including titles) to the “Authorship and Auteurism” Area on the MPCA/ACA Submission website (submissions.mpcaaca.org).  You will need to register to the website in order to submit a proposal. Please do not submit the same item to more than one Area.

Deadline for receipt of proposals is April 30, 2014.

Include name, affiliation, address, and e-mail address of each author/participant. You must specify any AV and any special scheduling needs with your proposal. MPCA/ACA can provide an LCD projector for presentations.
