Southwest Popular/American Culture Association
Please join us for the 36th annual conference of the Southwest Popular/American Culture Association, February 11-14, 2015, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel and Conference Center in Albuquerque, New Mexico. The theme for 2015 is “Many Face, Many Voices: Intersecting Borders in Popular and American Culture.”
Digital Humanities (DH) is “a nexus of fields within which scholars use computing technologies to investigate the kinds of questions that are traditional to the humanities, or . . . ask traditional kinds of humanities-oriented questions about computing technologies.” (Kathleen Fitzpatrick, “The Humanities, Done Digitally”). The DH area is seeking papers (approximately 15 minutes in length) that explore the practical, pedagogical, and theoretical issues stemming from the use of Web technologies and other computing techniques and applications to enhance the study of the humanities, particularly popular and American culture studies. What are some of the exciting DH projects being developed today, and how are they redefining the way we approach popular culture? How is DH changing popular culture studies in (and outside of) academe?
