CFP - Popular Culture Association

Popular Culture Association and American Culture Association

Libraries, Archives, Museums, and Popular Culture Area

The Popular Culture Association and the American Culture Association annual conference will be held April 20 - April 23, 2011 in the Marriott Riverwalk and Rivercenter Hotels, San Antonio, Texas. Scholars from numerous disciplines will meet to share their Popular Culture research and interests.

The Libraries, Archives, Museums, and Popular Culture area is soliciting papers dealing with any aspect of Popular Culture as it pertains to libraries, archives, museums, or research. This year we would particularly like to hear reports about Popular Culture in library education. Other possibilities include descriptions of research collections or exhibits, studies of popular images of libraries or librarians, analyses of social networking or web resources such as Wikipedia and YouTube, or reports on developments in technical services for collecting popular culture materials.

Papers from graduate students are welcome.

Prospective presenters should send a one-page abstract (electronic preferred) with full contact information by December 15, 2010, to:

Allen Ellis

Professor of Library Services
W. Frank Steely Library
