Call For Papers -- The Mid-Atlantic Popular/American Culture Association
Call for Papers for the Medieval/Renaissance Area
Modern society – and pop culture in particular – seems enthralled with the new. We revel in the latest gadgets and gizmos, viewing last year’s phone or e-reader as obsolete and quickly relegating it to the trash heap. Paradoxically, however, the bygone eras of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance continue to fascinate and to exert their influence on our own period’s zeitgeist. This call for papers encourages essays that look at the ways in which the works, as well as the mores, of the medieval and early-modern eras continue to shape the modern landscape.
Please send a 250-word proposal, including AV requests, by June 30, 2012 to:
Diana Vecchio, Area Chair, firstname.lastname@example.org
Mary Behrman, Area Co-Chair, Behrm5@aol.com
We also welcome panel proposals.
