2014 Annual Conference

November 6-8, 2014
Baltimore, Maryland
Lord Baltimore Hotel

2014 marks the birth of the Mid-Atlantic Popular & American Culture Association as an incorporated association. For this occasion, MAPACA returns to the city that hosted the first Mid-Atlantic regional conference on American and Popular Culture in 1990. The conference will be held at the newly renovated Lord Baltimore Hotel in Downtown Baltimore, Maryland. The Lord Baltimore Hotel was built in 1928 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The hotel was purchased by the Rubell Family who launched a complete remodel and restoration of the French Renaissance hotel.

In addition to the usual collection of multidisciplinary scholarship on the varied aspects of popular and American culture, the conference will feature special programming on MAPACA’s history, a formal recognition of our founding members, and a lot of exciting surprises to come.

Call for papers: 

Proposals are welcome on all aspects of popular and American culture for inclusion in the 2014 Mid-Atlantic Popular & American Culture Association conference in Baltimore, Maryland.

Single papers, panels, roundtables, and alternative formats are welcome.

Proposals should take the form of 300-word abstracts, and may only be submitted to one appropriate area.
