Apologies for cross-postings.
Derham Groves and I invite interested persons to submit a proposal to the
2007 National Pop/Am Culture Association Annual Conference at the Boston
Marriott Copley Place, Boston, MA from April 4-7, 2007.
Popular Art, Architecture and Design is concerned with the aesthetics of
popular material culture in the everyday world of the past, present and
future. Scholars from such disciplines as Architecture, Art History, Fine
Art, Industrial Design, and Interior Design are invited to submit
proposals. At previous conferences topics have included World Fairs,
architectural follies, urban image, Buckminster Fuller, Tadao Ando, urban
memory, Disneyland, railroad stations, literary architecture, Vietnamese
shop-houses, mobile homes, and the effect of television on home and
clothing design. It is truly a broad arena! Popular Art, Architecture and
Design papers may be published in an e-zine after the conference. Please
e-mail a cover letter with contact information and 150-word abstract of
your proposed paper to Dr. Rett Lorance at <[log in to unmask]> and Dr.
Derham Groves at <[log in to unmask]>. NO ATTACHMENTS.
The deadline for abstracts is November 15, 2006.
Registration fees apply.
