NEPCA Conference Schedule

This page is the conference page for the 2020 Northeast Popular Culture Association (NEPCA) Conference.  It will be updated periodically and should be the go-to place for information.  We also encourage you to sign up for the NEPCA blog to keep up-to-date with our conference and other information and opportunities (sign up via email, RSS, or other preferred formats on the right-hand column).

The 2020 Northeast Popular Culture Association (NEPCA) will host its annual conference this fall as a virtual conference from Oct 22-24, 2020, sponsored by 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.
