The 2020 Northeast Popular Culture Association (NEPCA) will host its annual conference this fall on Friday, October 23-Saturday, October 24 at the Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester, 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.
You can find general information about the 2020 conference and any updates here. We will be updating it with the hotel discount rate as well as other lodging options and the like.
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.
Please submit your proposal via the online form: https://forms.gle/TTbp6EVTkYJqcGgM6. Both proposals for individual papers and complete panels will be considered. The deadline for proposals is June 1, 2020.
The 2020 conference is about 1 hour from Boston, just under 2 hours from Providence, RI or around 2.5 hours from Burlington, VT, Hartford, Connecticut or Augusta, ME, about 3.5 hours from Albany, NY, 4.5 hours from New York City or Montreal, QC.
