hold their annual meeting at
September 15, 2000
The PCA section on Dime Novels, Pulp Magazines, and Juvenile
Series Books is requesting paper proposals for presentations
of 15-20 minutes. There will be four papers per session and
the time limit will be strictly, though politely,
Papers may cover any aspect of these subjects, including (but
not limited to) themes, authors, major characters, audience,
publishing history, bibliography and resarch methods,
authorship, special collections, and matters of gender,
image, or attitude.
Although this is primarily an academic conference, all people
with an interest in these subjects are invited to participate
by presenting or attending; you need not be a professional
writer or scholar.
Potential participants are reminded that membership in either
the PCA or ACA is required as well as registration for the
conference in order to present. However, you do not have to
be a member to submit a proposal. Once accepted, you should
join and register immediately to appear in the conference
All participants are requested to send a 250-word abstract
which will be posted on the section's website
and may be included in other promotional materials. We
understand and recognize that a research topic can evolve
slightly between the proposal deadline and the presentation
First-time participants should sent a 1-2 page proposal (it
is often helpful to include a bibliography of proposed
reference sources) along with the 250-word abstract.
The deadline for submitting proposals and abstracts is
September 15, 1999. Please include an e-mail address if you
have one. Also, include any AV requests (slide
projector/screen or VCR only) with your abstract.
Send all materials to (note new addresses and phone
