NEPCA welcomes papers from a wide range of disciplines that explore the role of political actors, discourses, and satire in popular culture. Studies of political rhetoric, representations of politics in the mass media, and shifting public attitudes are particularly welcome. Paper proposals (250-words) should be sent to the area chair, Bob Hackey, via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) on or before June 15, 2015.

NEPCA presentations are generally 20 minutes in length and may be delivered either formally or informally.
