Southwest Popular American Culture Association Conference, February 15-18, 2017, in Rollicking Albuquerque NM
NOTE: DEADLINE EXTENDED TO SUBMIT A PROPOSAL FOR THIS WONDERFUL CONFERENCE IN FEBRUARY 2017 FROM NOVEMBER 1 TO NOVEMBER 15.
Katherine Sugg, the Area Chair of the Cormac McCarthy area, is seeking a few more paper proposals on any aspect of the work of Cormac McCarthy, including novels, plays, television and film scripts, and adaptations. We invite presentations about all facets of McCarthy’s work, ranging from critical essays to analyses employing recognized research methodologies.
We currently have two full panels and one partial panel’s worth of papers. We need only one or two more to fill out three solid sessions. If you’re only going to one conference this academic year, make it this one – it’s far and away the most fun you can have at an academic conference.
Paper presentations 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
McCarthy and Hollywood
Issues in film adaptation
Neoliberal discourse and/in McCarthy
Southern gothic and its meaning now
Horror and McCarthy
McCarthy and nature / the environment
All proposals must be submitted through the conference’s database at http://conference2017.southwestpca.org/
For details on using the submission database and on the application process in general, please see the Proposal Submission FAQs and Tips page at http://southwestpca.org/conference/faqs-and-tips/proposal-submission-faqs-and-tips/
Individual proposals for 15 minute papers must include an abstract of approximately 200-500 words. Including a brief bio in the body of the proposal form is encouraged, but not required.
For information on how to submit a proposal for a roundtable or a multi-paper panel, please view the FAQs and Tips page.
The deadline for submissions has been moved back to November 15, 2016.
For inquiries or information (but NOT proposals), email Katherine Sugg at firstname.lastname@example.org
