NEPCA - Monsters & the Monstrous - Deadline: 2021-08-01
« on: May 29, 2021, 08:51:56 PM »
Northeastern Monsters (8/1/21; NEPCA virtual 10/21-23/21)

Deadline: August 1, 2021
Organization/Organizer: Michael Torregrossa / Monsters & the Monstrous Area of the Northeast Popular/American Culture Association

The Northeast Popular Culture/American Culture Association (a.k.a. NEPCA) prides itself on holding conferences that emphasize sharing ideas in a non-competitive and supportive environment. We welcome proposals for presentations of 15-20 minutes in length, from researchers at all levels, including undergraduate and graduate students, junior faculty, and senior scholars, as well as independent scholars. NEPCA conferences offer intimate and nurturing sessions in which new ideas and works-in-progress can be aired, as well as completed projects.

For this session, we’re looking for papers that explore and highlight the Northeast’s contributions to monster lore, including authors, events, individuals, locations, and, of course, monsters.


If you are interested in joining this session, please submit the following information into NEPCA’s online form at

Working Title
Abstract (250 words)
