Hello! I just wanted to reach out and remind everyone that CSCA submissions are now open and are due on October 7, 2022 (that’s about a month away)! Just as a reminder, here is the CFP for our program:
The Popular Culture Interest Group invites submissions of papers, paper panels, discussion panels, and innovative programming for the 2023 Central States Communication Association convention in St. Louis, Missouri, March 29 - April 2. The purpose of the Popular Culture Interest Group is to promote the interdisciplinary study of popular culture research, scholarship, and creativity. This year’s conference is themed “Intersections, Transitions, and Silenced Voices;” we intend to highlight work that focuses on empowering silenced voices and historically marginalized voices. Popular culture is a place where all people can investigate their identities. We will be celebrating all identities and scholarship that bolsters those voices and stories that are not traditionally found within academia. We encourage graduate students to submit their work. Preference for panels will be given to those with panelists representing multiple institutions rather than representing a single institution. Monetary awards will be given to the Top Faculty Paper and the Founders Award for Top Student Paper.
Please do not hesitate to contact the PCIG program planner, Nettie Brock, at firstname.lastname@example.org or at email@example.com. I’m happy to answer any questions or concerns you have. You also can locate us on Facebook at CSCA Popular Culture Interest Group; on Twitter and Instagram @PCIG_CSCA. If you’ve got a good idea for a panel, you might consider using those social media groups to find people to be a part of it!
See you all in St. Louis!
