Rap Music and Hip Hop Culture
Southwest/Texas Popular & American Culture Association 28th Annual Conference

Albuquerque, New Mexico, February 14-17, 2007

Hyatt Regency Albuquerque

The 2007 SW/TX PCA/ACA Conference will be held in Albuquerque, New Mexico
at the Hyatt Regency downtown. Join us this year, as a returning or
first-time participant, as we celebrate a new future on Route 66 at this
regional popular culture conference. Further details regarding the
conference (listing of all areas, hotel, registration, tours, etc.) can be
found at

Proposals for both Panels and Individual Papers are now being accepted for
the Rap Music and Hip Hop Culture Area.  We had excellent representation
in this Area for 2006, and we are looking to expand in both quantity and
complexity for 2007.  This year, we are particularly interested in
proposals that address the following:

-	Intersections of Hip Hop and Pedagogy
-	Theoretical approaches to Hip Hop (i.e., Language 
	Theory/Postmodernism/Social Theory)
-	Rhetorical Approaches to Rap Music and Hip Hop Culture
-	Rap, Hip Hop, and Film/Documentary
-	Hip Hop Subjectivities/Agency
-	Anthropological/Sociological approaches to Hip Hop Culture
-	Economics and Hip Hop Culture

As always, papers and panels that consider the myriad ways that Rap Music
and Hip Hop culture impact and feed upon Popular and American culture are
encouraged.  This Area should be construed broadly, and we seek papers
that aren^t afraid to take risks.  Proposals from Graduate Students are
particularly welcome, with award opportunities for best graduate papers.

Please send abstracts of 250 words with relevant audio/visual requests by
November 15, 2006, to Brian McNely at the email or physical address below.  
Panel proposals should include one abstract of 200 words describing the
panel, accompanied by the underlying abstracts of 250 words of the
individual papers that comprise the panel.
