I’ve presented at the Southwest Popular/American Culture Association Conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico several times. If you are a popular culture fan and can make it to New Mexico in February, it is a great experience. The conference is a warm and welcoming community. The conference is open not just for those in academia. Fans, bloggers and others that love discussing popular culture are welcome.
I present in the Science Fiction and Fantasy area and have covered topics such as Dr. Horrible’s Sing A Long Blog, Dollhouse, and The Vampire Diaries. I’ve just been accepted to present at the 2014 Conference and the deadline for submissions has been extended to November, 15.
The conference covers interesting and diverse subject areas, from film, television, music. If you like it there is probably a panel on it. Here are some areas that readers of my blog might be interested in presenting or at least attending.
- The Works of Joss Whedon
- Supernatural (TV series)
- The Vampire Diaries
- Science Fiction and Fantasy – General
- Science Fiction and Fantasy – Literature
- Doctor Who and/or Torchwood
- A Game of Thrones
- The Hunger Games
- Breaking Bad ( pretty great, since it is in ABQ)
- Harry Potter Studies
Let me know, if I’ll see you in Albuquerque in February.
