The *Northeast Popular/American Culture Association* is seeking papers on
the topic of minor league or major league baseball for its annual fall
conference, which will be held Friday October 26 and Saturday October 27,
2012 on the campus of St. John Fisher College in Rochester, New York.
The Rochester (NY) Redwings have fielded a minor league baseball team since
1929, making it the sixth longest-running franchise in all of professional
baseball. NEPCA seeks papers that deal with minor league baseball, though
all baseball and sports topics are welcome.
NEPCA papers are generally 15-20 minutes in length, and the organization
strongly encourages creative delivery of papers, though they can also be
read. The deadline for applications is *June 1, 2012. *Please send a 1-2
page paper proposal and a one-page vita to *both* Sports Program Chair *Rob
Weir *firstname.lastname@example.org and to Conference Chair *Tim Madigan *
