Meeting Description: The Mid-Atlantic Popular & American Culture Association (MAPACA), a regional organization of the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association (PCA/ACA), is an academic organization dedicated to critical analysis of various aspects of popular and American culture.

“Language and Popular Culture” invites papers on any topic related to the relationship between language and Popular Culture. Proposals may focus upon any type of language use or communicative event (written, spoken, visual, multi-modal) as it is evidenced in any Popular Culture phenomenon (e.g. film; television; the Internet; speculative fiction and genre fiction; comics; advertising; music; gaming; the tabloid press, etc.). The perspective taken may be contemporary or historical or a mix of both.

While the emphasis here is on language, the area is by nature interdisciplinary, combining methods and theoretical approaches from any number of academic disciplines, not least linguistics, literature studies, cultural studies, media studies, critical literacy and pedagogy.
Linguistic Subfield: Applied Linguistics; Discourse Analysis; Ling & Literature; Sociolinguistics; Text/Corpus Linguistics
