The 2022 Northeast Popular Culture Association (NEPCA) will host its annual conference this fall as another virtual conference from Thursday, October 20-Saturday, October 22 in a similar structure to last year (Thursday evening, Friday late afternoon, Saturday morning).
We all want to be back together again face-to-face but without a campus to host us, we decided virtual would be ideal for access and affordability. 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 several dozen areas for you to submit your proposal to, so be sure to check out our Conference Areas to determine the best place for your proposal. If you have questions about a particular area, reach out and ask the appropriate Area Chair.
The call will be open until August 1, 2022. You can submit your proposal at this link, which will ask the following questions about your proposal:
- Proposal Type (Single Presentation or Panel)
- Subject Area
- Working Title
- Academic Affiliation (if any)
- Abstract (250 words)
- Short bio (50-200 words)
If you have any questions about the conference, please reach out to Lance Eaton, the Executive Secretary (firstname.lastname@example.org).
