PCAS/ACAS Conference Savannah, GA October 2010

Provocative panels, spectacular weather and Southern hospitality merged to create a memorable PCA/ACAS conference in Savannah, October 7 – 9th. Post presentation discussions spilled into the hallways, as popular culture scholars and theorists engaged in lively, good-natured debate well after panels ended. It’s clear to see why this group boasts the largest of the regional culture associations in North America.

It was a pleasure to introduce myself (Amy) as the newest member of Intellect team, and present our portfolio of books and journals. The atrium balcony—overlooking the Savannah riverfront—was the perfect place to chat with many of you, and learn more about your work and focus. And it was a special delight to meet a number of our current journal editors in person.

Over the three day period, many exciting potential book and journal ideas were discussed. I want to encourage potential authors and editors to contact me directly or access the “Publish with Us” area on the homepage to learn more about submission guidelines.  I’m also available to answer any questions or simply provide a sounding board if you’re just in the beginning stages of a proposal.

Hats off to Diane and the PCAS/ACAS group for organizing such an exceptionally well-run and exciting conference. I look forward to seeing some familiar faces in San Antonio for the national meeting April 20 -23rd. If not, I expect to meet up with you at next year’s PCAS/ACAS in New Orleans!
