Call For Papers: Inaugural East Asian Popular Culture Association Conference

Location: Taiwan
Call for Papers Date: 2011-05-31

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
  • designate one panelist as contact person
  • indicate audio/visual needs.

Each paper proposal, whether individual or part of a panel, should include for each participant:

  • one page abstract (including title)
  • short biography of the author
  • audio/visual needs
  • contact information of address, phone number, and email

The Program Committee assumes all members of proposed panels have agreed to participate.

The deadline for submissions is March 31, 2011.

Please email submissions to:

Dr. Yin C. Chuang
National Taiwan Normal University

Masashi Ichiki
Chikushi Jogakuen University

    May I know if the deadline of paper abstract submission is the end of May, as stated at the start of this post?
    I would also like to ask the email address of Dr. Yin C. Chuang as it is not displayed in this post.
    Thank you very much!

      Sorry the information wasn’t there- it seems as if the email was forgotten on the original posting (I checked around the web and other calls for papers also did not include Dr. Chuang’s email). However, upon checking the IEAPCA’s original page, there is a generic email listed under Dr. Chuang’s name for submissions. (

      Perhaps the deadline was extended to June 15th, because that is the deadline listed on the site. Best to contact them directly and ask. 🙂 Hope this helps!
