Tomorrow I head up to Pittsburgh, PA for the annual MAPACA (Mid-Atlantic Popular and American Culture Association) Conference. This year I am presenting my paper titled: “Travel Channel: Singlehandedly Delegitimizing the Paranormal Field.” My show is an early Thursday event scheduled at 1:45 PM. Upon my return, I will post excerpts of it. I’m looking forward to returning to Pitt–it has been many decades since I visited.
In addition to my appearance at this year’s DragonCon, Labor Day Weekend in Atlanta, I will be speaking at two academic conferences. These are fantastic conferences on everything related to Pop Culture.
- “Using the Paranormal Phenomenon of Mothman to Teach Research.” Pop Culture Association in the South & American Culture Association in the South (PCAS/ACAS), New Orleans, LA, October 4-6, 2018.
- “Exorcists Needed: Filling the Gap.” 2018 Annual Conference of the Mid-Atlantic Popular & American Culture Association, Baltimore, MD, November 8-10, 2018.
