(All must pay registration online. No onsite registration will be accepted. Those planning on presenting must pay by MAY 15, 2014: No extensions. Registration payment system will open by March 15th please checkback.)
A submission does not guarantee that your paper will be accepted for presentation at the conference. Please retain hard copies of both abstract acceptance confirmations and registration/payment confirmation. You will be asked to indicate the type of submission you wish to make.
Your choices are the following:
You must select one of the 14 primary categories listed below as well as one of the 5 subcategories. Your choice will be important in determining the kind of panel on which you are placed, and it will also aid in avoiding time conflicts for panels on similar topics when possible. To be accepted at a minimum the paper must have a media or popular culture element.
Only original papers may be presented; papers that have been published or presented elsewhere may not be presented. Submissions are interpreted as meaning that the proposed presentation satisfies these conditions.
Here are a few guidelines that may help you in selecting the most appropriate category and subcategory:
1. Category: In making your selection, focus on the aspect of your paper that you would describe as your primary
concern in selecting the broad category. For example, if you would like to present a paper titled, “Bob Dylan and Social Justice”
you might submit under: Music
2. Subcategory: When choosing your subcategory select the category that best fits your paper. For example, if you would
like to present a paper titled, “City Ordinances and the Death of the Street Musician” you might choose the subcategory of
Policy or Legal depending on the focus. The sub-categories will be used to help better determine the fit for panels.
ABSTRACTS: All submissions must include abstracts limited to 200 words and should describe the general theme of the presentation and, where relevant, the methods and results. All submissions must include complete contact information and the aforementioned category and subcategory selection.
