Undergraduate Sessions

Undergraduate students are invited to submit a proposal for presentation at the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association National Conference. If you are an undergraduate student, this is the subject area where you should be submitting your proposal. Presentation proposals should consist of a 250-to-500 word abstract or summary of your presentation topic which can include any topic as long as it provides academic insights into some aspect of popular culture or American culture.

For Undergraduate Students:

To submit your proposal, click on the following link to the PCA/ACA National Conference Submission Site and then carefully read and follow the step-by-step instructions in the “How to Submit a Proposal” prompt on that site.


If there are three or more of you from the same school submitting proposals then in addition to submitting your proposals through the Conference Submission Site, you will need to have your faculty instructor or advisor see and follow the below instructions.

For Faculty Advisors or Faculty Members with Undergraduate Students Submitting Proposals:

If you have three or more students submitting presentation proposals for an undergraduate panel of students from your school, be sure to have each of your students individually submit their proposals through the online submission process (see above instructions). After you have confirmed that they have all individually submitted their proposals, please send me a separate e-mail with the name of your school; the names of the students on your panel; the name of the person who will be moderating your panel (either yourself or a designee); and a proposed title for your panel so I’ll know to assign your students to your panel with you or your designee serving as the session chair. (If you would prefer that I split your students up, assigning half of them to other panels that consist of undergraduate students from different schools, let me know when you send me your e-mail.)

If you have any questions or need further information, send all inquiries to:
