Edited Volume: Essays in Popular Culture Call for Papers

Edited Volume: Essays in Popular Culture Call for Papers Date:

We are seeking contributions for an edited volume tentatively entitled Collected Essays in Popular Culture.

The academic field of Popular Culture has been active since the 80s, and it might be argued that what passes for popular culture today may be the classic of tomorrow. This volume seeks to draw together papers which not only focus on popular culture but are themselves reminiscent of the time and place which engendered them.

Papers may have already been published in journals or conference proceedings, but need not have been. They should reflect a now-historic sense of popular culture and may focus on any aspect or media.

Topics may include (but are not restricted to) graphic novels, comic books, television, film, radio, internet culture, queer, gay, and lesbian studies, advertising, poster art, propaganda, children's toys, feminist/egalitarian/masculinist studies, 9/11.

Due date for full papers is Dec. 29, 2008. Email submissions (in Word, odt, rtf) to: n.norris@st-jean.rmc.ca. Please include biographical info. and c.v.
