Far West Popular Culture and American Culture Associations annual conference
Las Vegas 11-13 March 2011

Las Vegas was once again, appropriately enough, the venue for the Far West Popular Culture and American Culture Associations annual conference, from 11-13 March, and Intellect was delighted to attend this friendly and welcoming conference. I was lucky enough to sit in on a number of very interesting and thought-provoking panels on topics ranging from popular culture in Junot Diaz’s Pulitzer Prize winning novel to vampires and other fictional serial killers. I was also able to explore the world-famous Las Vegas Strip, where pirate ships and the Eiffel tower adorn the sidewalk, where you can walk along Venice’s canals and end up in Ancient Rome, and where fountains dance in tune to the Pink Panther theme or Italian opera depending on the time of day.

I very much enjoyed meeting so many of those of you who presented at the conference, and speaking to you about your research projects, and we look forward to receiving your submissions. Please do check out the Publish with us section of our website for more information. I would also like to thank the conference organisers for a great conference, and we look forward to seeing you next year!
