call for papers - popular art

Popular Art, Architecture and Design

We are now calling for papers in the area of Popular Art, Architecture and Design for the 36th Annual Popular Culture Association Conference, April 12-15, 2006 in Atlanta, Georgia. 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 <llorance@earthlink.net>
and Dr. Derham Groves at <derham@unimelb.edu.au>.
NO ATTACHMENTS. The deadline for abstracts is November 15, 2005.
Registration fees apply.
