The EAPCA (East Asian Popular Culture Association), the newest branch of the PCA / ACA, will hold its inaugural conference in September 1 to 3, 2011 at National Taiwan Normal University, Taipei, Taiwan. The EAPCA invites proposals for panels and papers on popular culture in Asia, particularly in Taiwan. We encourage papers with imaginative perspectives and interpretations of popular culture as a medium to convey memories and history, as we hope to explore issues such as the way popular culture has been used to adopt meaning to the past events, how the global flow of popular culture changes the way people recognize their own history, and how the popular culture affect the socio-cultural map of East Asia. We welcome submissions for panels, roundtable discussions, workshops, and individual papers. As the language of the conference is English, the proposals should be in English as well. All submissions should be sent by email, with attachments in Word or PDF file format. Please write EAPCA proposal in the subject line. When submitting a panel proposal:

include a 150 200 words abstract of the panels theme
