CP: Popular Culture Association National Conference

CFP: Material Culture Area
Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association 2009 National
Conference, New Orleans Marriott, New Orleans, Louisiana
April 8 through April 11

The study of material culture offers an exciting area for interdisciplinary research and conversation, as it brings together those engaged in scholarly inquiry in areas as diverse as history, art history, decorative arts, cultural studies, literature, communications, anthropology, and sociology. If your work touches on the study of designed objects and consumer goods, we would love to learn more about it at this year's conference in New Orleans. Graduate students, museum professionals, and public historians are welcome.

Past presentations in this area have focused on decorative arts and the construction of literary characters, the material culture of poverty, commemorative items, historic and modern furnishings and fashion, marketing trends, and a wide range of additional topics.

Submission Guidelines:
If you are interested in presenting, please send an abstract of between 100 and 250 words by 30 November 2008 to Ella Howard at the contact information below. Email submissions are preferred. I am also happy to answer any questions about the ACA/PCA Conference or the Material Culture Area.
