EXTENDED CFP! NEPCA Deadline – June 15

While we’ve got proposals rolling in at a fast clip, we wanted to extend a little bit longer of an opportunity for people to get their proposals in so we have the best pool to choose from.  So if you haven’t submitted yet, then you better act now!

The 2019 Northeast Popular Culture Association (NEPCA) will host its annual conference this fall on Friday, November 15-Saturday, November 16 at the Sheraton Portsmouth Harborside Hotel in Portsmouth, New Hampshire.  We are looking forward to another engaging and rewarding conference for new and seasoned members alike.  We are seeking proposals for panels and presentations for this year’s conference.

NEPCA prides itself on holding conferences that emphasize sharing ideas in a non-competitive and supportive environment. We welcome proposals from graduate students, junior faculty, and senior scholars. NEPCA conferences offer intimate and nurturing sessions in which new ideas and works-in-progress can be aired, as well as completed projects.

We have over 35 different areas for you to submit your proposal to, so be sure to check out our Areas of Pop Culture to determine the best place for your proposal.  If you have questions about a particular area, reach out and ask the appropriate Area Chair.
