    It’s almost that time of the year again. Well, of next year, anyway. The Southwest/Texas division of the American Popular Culture Association is staging its annual conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico from February 7-10, 2018. The deadline for submitting papers to the Cormac McCarthy section is 15 November.

    The Area Chair of the Cormac McCarthy Area of the Southwest PCA/ACA conference is seeking paper proposals on any aspect of the work of Cormac McCarthy, including novels, plays, and television and film scripts and adaptations. We invite presentations about all facets of McCarthy’s work in forms ranging from critical essays to analyses employing recognized research methodologies. The chair also welcomes pre-formed panels, but will need submissions to be uploaded individually as required by the SWPACA. Paper presentations should be 15 minutes and should present an arguable thesis or develop a compelling question.
    Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
    McCarthy and the West
    McCarthy and apocalypse
    Narration and historical imaginaries in McCarthy’s work
    Narrative theory approaches to McCarthy’s writing
    Gender and sexuality studies approaches to McCarthy’s work
    McCarthy and Hollywood
    Issues in film adaptation
    Neoliberal discourse and/in McCarthy
    Southern gothic and its meaning now
    Horror and McCarthy
    Extended Deadline for submissions, November 15, 2017.
