The Popular Culture Studies Journal The Midwest Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association (MPCA/ACA) is the home of a journal in the field of popular culture studies.

Aims and scope: Popular culture is at the heart of democratic citizenship. It serves as an engine driving technology, innovation, and information, as well as a methodological lens employed by the many fields that examine culture, often from an interdisciplinary perspective. Managed by The Midwest Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association (MPCA/ACA), The Popular Culture Studies Journal is an academic, refereed journal for scholars, academics, and students from the many disciplines that study America and American culture. The journal serves its membership and scholars globally who recognize and support its mission based on expanding the way we view popular culture as a fundamental component within the contemporary world.

Topics covered: Based on analysis of the proceedings of the Midwest PCA/ACA and the national organization reveals that most popular culture scholars are interested in American-based: • • • • • • • •

Film Music Television Sports Celebrity Culture Technology Literature Comics/Cartoons/Graphic Novels

However, many scholars approach these topics from an interdisciplinary perspective, which adds significant value over single-issue or more focused/specialized journals.

ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS I’d first like to thank all of the attendees and presenters this year. Each year, the MPCA/ACA conference bring scholars from all over the world who are dedicated to researching and sharing scholarship in popular culture and American culture studies. You all make my job a pleasure and a joy. MPCA/ACA could not be possible without the generosity of members and organizers who volunteer their time, including the wonderful area chairs, the executive council, the award judges, and the fantastic presenters. I also want to thank the PCA/ACA leadership for their continued support of the organization. Lori Abels Scharenbroich, who has been with MPCA/ACA since it rebooted, is amazing in all that she does for the organization. Without her efforts coordinating with hotels and her great negotiating skills, we’d be meeting in a corn field somewhere. This year Kelsey Kwasniak has shadowed Lori and helped immensely as our first Leadership Fellow. Cortney Cronberg Barko, our outgoing Vice President and incoming President, constantly offered assistance and guidance to area chairs in gathering panels and organizing presenters. The Program Committee, Anne Canavan, Sarah Petrovic, and Pam Wicks, have worked to put together a program book and schedule. After many years on the executive council, we will definitely be sad to see Sarah Petrovic step down from the Program Committee. She has been instrumental in offering insight and in our panel surveys each year. Matt Kneller has kept up our website and made a lovely Chicago conference logo. Bob Batchelor and Norma Jones deserve extra special accolades for their work on MPCA/ACA’s now award-winning journal, The Popular Culture Studies Journal. A special thank you to the editors of the 2015 special edition of the journal on autoethnography and popular culture. Tony Adams and Jimmie Manning won the Best Special Journal Issue in the NCA Ethnography Division for their contributions to the field. Brent Jones creates amazing cover designs for the journal. And Jennifer Dunn did an amazing job bolstering the Reviews section of the journal; we are sad that this year marked her last issue as Reviews Editor. This year, the amazing Paul Booth will step down as President. He worked in the role of Vice President to create consistency in the area chair roles. And has done everything so well, that he’s often way ahead of everyone else. Luckily, we get to keep him a little longer as Immediate Past President, but we will miss his inspiring leadership that has helped MPCA/ACA to grow. As always, my biggest thanks go to Gary Burns who had me working the registration desk at my first MPCA/ACA conference and without whom, none of us would be sharing our scholarship in the Midwest. He’s been instrumental in bringing in young scholars and helping develop MPCA/ACA into what it is today. And thanks to Brendan Riley who came before me but still sticks around to offer guidance, support, and an amazing pub quiz every year. And a very special thank you to all of you who come and support MPCA/ACA, who share wonderful ideas and scholarship, who advance the fields of popular culture and American culture studies. You are the ones who make it all worthwhile!

GET INVOLVED IN MPCA/ACA 2017 CALL FOR AREA CHAIRS Midwest Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association Members of the Midwest Popular Culture Association/ American Culture Association meet in a conference once each year. The conference is organized by Area Chairs who solicit papers, organize panels, and commit to attend the regional conference for at least three years.

EXECUTIVE COUNCIL CANDIDATE STATEMENTS 2016 Vice-president/President-elect Candidates Bob Batchelor. It is with great enthusiasm that I hope to be your next Midwest Popular Culture Association and Midwest American Culture Association Vice President/President-Elect. My chief aims in this role are to be an advocate for MPCA/ACA members and an activist leader the organization as a whole. Achieving these goals necessitates increased personal outreach and a willingness to engage with important issues that impact our lives as thinkers, scholars, academics, and citizens. There are battles being waged all around us, from contingent faculty issues to attempts at repealing tenure and concerns regarding the value of liberal arts education. I strongly believe that the MPCA/ACA President can and should provide guidance on these types of topics on the local, regional, and national stage. In addition, I have several initiatives that I would like to pursue, including: Market and publicize MPCA/ACA on the local and regional level to attract and retain members; Establish outreach to corporations, foundations, and other organizations to raise endowment funds; and Raise public awareness of the organization, its members, and pertinent issues, such as contingent faculty topics, ideas regarding humanities education, and others The three-pronged agenda will benefit MPCA/ACA and its members by: Strengthening the organization financially and preparing for long-term growth; Raising awareness of the organization as an intellectual home for popular culture aficionados, thus increasing membership; and Demonstrating the value of MPCA/ACA members in the scholarly, public, and intellectual communities where they live and work The Vice President/President-Elect position equates to a nine-year commitment to this organization and its membership. I believe that my past work for the organization has demonstrated my deep commitment to MPCA/ACA and that this brief statement provides an understanding of my aspirations for its future. I envision asking myself each day: what can I do today to help MPCA/ACA and its members. Katie Wilson. When I first attended MPCA in 2011, I knew this organization would be an important part of my life and career. I am thrilled to be nominated for Vice President and can promise that, if elected, I will continue the exceptional work that has come before me. I currently serve as the Fan Studies Area Chair, the Student/New Professional Representative, and serve on the Undergraduate Paper Committee. These positions have opened my eyes to the many hours it takes to put together our ever expanding conference. As our organization grows, the role of Vice President and President need to be ready to make hard decisions about budgets, scheduling, and the expansion of Areas. I feel confident that my relationships with the executive board, the area chairs, and the members will provide me with a voice that will vote in the best interest of our organization.

20

As Vice President, I will work to create more communication between the Area Chairs and the Executive Council, encourage Areas with little engagement to recruit more presenters, and look for opportunities where similar subject areas might work together on collaborative panels. My vision for the future of MPCA is a continued growth of our membership, but also a continued growth in the social and networking programs we provide. Over and over again, I hear from our members that the thing that makes our conference special is how rewarding the networking and social activities we offer are. Activities such as Game Night and the Pub Quiz are an important part of the way we both retain and engage our members. I would work to add more social opportunities such as film screenings and organized outings. If elected, I want to keep the activities that make our organization special, fun, and rewarding. Currently, I am a PhD candidate from the University of Louisville researching political and social activism in fan communities. I have an M.A. in Media and Cinema Studies from DePaul University and I teach Film and Humanities courses at Harry S Truman College in Chicago. Thank you for your consideration.

Graduate Student/New Professional Representative Candidates Megan Cannella has been a member of MPCA/ACA since 2013 and has been the MPCA/ACA Urban Studies Area Chair since 2014. Having lived in Illinois for most of her life, Megan is currently a second year PhD student at the University of Nevada, Reno. Her research focuses on intersections of place and identity in 21st century American literature. In addition to being an active member of MPCA/ACA, Megan has also regularly presented at the PAMLA and PCA/ACA conferences since 2012. She has published book reviews in the Journal of Ecocriticism, CUR Quarterly, and Arkansas Review. Megan’s published essays include “The Pain and Prison of Post-9/11 Parenting in Jonathan Franzen’s Freedom” (in Paul Petrovic’s edited collection Representing 9/11: Trauma, Ideology, and Nationalism in Literature, Film, and Television, 2015) and “The Quiet Zoo: The Role of Quiet in Suburban Domesticity in Franzen’s Freedom and The Corrections” (in Myrna Santos’s edited collection An Introvert in an Extrovert World: Essays on the Quiet Ones, 2015). In January, Megan will present the paper, “Resolution through Mobility: A Discussion of Two Missouri Poets, Akila Oliver and Daunte Henderson,” at the 2017 MLA Convention. Julia Lagent. Hello! My name is Julia Largent. I’m a Ph.D. candidate in the School of Media and Communication at Bowling Green State University where I focus on documentary studies and fan studies (and the bridge between the two). I have been a member of PCA/ACA for four years, and a member of Midwest PCA for two. MPCA has provided a caring and nurturing environment that has helped me succeed in furthering my education and research. Each year, I strongly encourage my peers to submit and to attend MPCA in hopes they find the same welcoming environment and

21

encouragement that I have received. I do this also as a way to encourage other graduate students to participate in popular culture studies, as many do not realize their research fits within the discipline. As the graduate representative for MPCA, I would like to help provide the same opportunities and guidance to other graduate students who attend MPCA as I have. I hope to work with Norma Jones (and other individuals) to strengthen MPCA’s social media presence and to provide a platform that not only shares information, but serves as a way to hear concerns from graduate students. During my time as the Vice President of my institution’s Graduate Student Senate, I strengthened my ability to be a liaison and advocate for graduate students. If chosen to be the MPCA Graduate Representative, I will represent and support graduate students in a professional manner, while still providing a voice.

Member At Large Candidates Darryl Clark. Fellow members of the Midwest Popular Culture Association, thank you for reading my statement. I won’t take a lot of your time. My time with the association has been shorter than most but it has been so exciting. The association allowed me to create a dance area two years after I made my first presentation and that area continues to grow as I write this statement. And it happened pretty much because I said ‘Let’s Do This!’ without any kind of ceremony. Let’s do it; let’s make something happen and keep it happening. The year I submitted my name for nomination to the executive board, I did stop to think if my go-for-it energy would be welcome on the board. To date, it has been welcome. I have enjoyed the duties that have been a part of serving on the executive board as an executive member at large. The duties have been varied and exciting. I would like to continue serving on the board because, in essence, I can serve all the members of the organization at the same time. If I continue, I hope to find ways of bringing new members to the organization as well as bringing voices on dance and dance studies in to the field of dance research. There are so many things that are going on this world of ours and dance is somehow a part of many of these events. An organization like MPCAACA is a perfect place to give ground to these thoughts and ideas so they can grow out and reach other scholars. Thank you for reading my statement and know I am more than ready to step up and serve another term!

Ashley M. Donnelly. I hope to become the next member-atlarge of the MPCA/ACA Executive board for several reasons. I would like become an official working part of a professional institution I have enjoyed being a member of for over ten years. I want to give back to a community that has given so much to me. I believe I can effectively serve in this role as I have served in a similar position for my own university’s graduate school. I also feel that my flexible nature, the many roles I play within my community at Ball State, and my general interest and knowledge of the Midwest PCA/ACA will allow me to help as needed should other services be required throughout the year or during the conference itself. Last year I helped developed both the new paper and book awards and was glad to see how well they’ve been implemented into the conference. At my own institution not only do I perform the roles of scholar, professor, area chair, and graduate thesis committee chair/member, I work on committees within my college related to global development programs, promotion and tenure, and hiring decisions. At the university level I serve on committees focusing on scholarly grant issues as well as student discipline, interdisciplinary study, and graduate school concerns. I am on the editorial board of four well-known journals in the popular culture and communication fields and a published scholar in my own field. I feel confident in my ability to handle whatever should come my way as a representative of the MPCA/ACA and will work hard to be an advocate for this amazing community. Please feel free to stop me and ask me any questions you have, introduce yourself, or simply say hello. It will be my pleasure to meet you. John Dowell. I first met Ray Browne while working on an MA in Folk Studies at Western Kentucky University in the late ‘80s as he was “preaching” Against Academia. I had undergraduate degrees in psychology and sociology, an MA in sociology, and a hodgepodge of teaching experience in psych, soc, English, and anthro. But I was only now discovering there was a whole department devoted to my true humanities calling—Popular Culture Studies—at Bowling Green State University. Ray gained a convert that night. I showed up at BGSU knowing my dissertation in American Culture Studies would be about sLaughter [“SLAWFter"], the nexus-moment of humor and horror in American popular culture—still my primary academic interest. That’s why I’ve chaired over 40 sessions in both the Humor and Horror/SF/Fantasy areas of the MPCA/ACA for the last 15 years. My work for the MPCA/ACA already reflects my commitment, dedication, and love for the mission. I have kept up with the scholarship in critical culture studies—as my forthcoming book will attest—all while holding down a demanding full-time job as a technology literacy specialist at a Big 10 school. As a Member-At-Large for the Midwest PCA/ACA, I would apply my academic experience in strategic planning, budgeting, and organizational development. As someone accustomed to getting things done, I relish the opportunity to get things done for the MPCA/ACA, to be an advocate for members, and to reach out to new converts.

Ayanna Gaines. You may wonder why I would like to serve the organization in this capacity, especially given that I am an academic librarian, rather than a communications or American Studies scholar dedicated to this field of study. I’ve been a member of the MPCA/ACA since 2003. I’ve presented papers on such topics as Gilmore Girls slash fiction and the use of sock puppet LiveJournal accounts to create continuing storylines for Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Over the years, I have found that my knowledge of popular culture has informed my work as a librarian. Our students are patched into the pop culture network, often through forums such as YouTube, Reddit, memes, and Instagram. Clickbait articles and unflattering photos zoom quickly from Upworthy to phone. I can use their interest in pop culture to engage in discussion and instruction of more complex issues. Instead of just talking about the effect that the Black Lives Matter movement has had in Hollywood, I can show on video the speech that Jesse Williams made at the BET Awards, and then ask them whether a news article or an academic article would come out more quickly on this topic. I believe that my understanding of student research behaviors, combined with my own voracious pop culture habits, will serve the MPCA/ACA well. Allison R. Levin (MA, JD) is a Professor of Business and Sports Communication at Webster University in St. Louis, Missouri. Allison’s research and consulting builds upon her eclectic background in political science, economics, women’s studies, communications and law. Her recent work has focused on the effects of social media on pop culture, communications and sports. Allison has presented her work at conferences in Europe, Canada, and the United States and has presented at numerous MPCA/ACA conferences in multiple divisions including: Celebrity and Stardom, Fan Studies, Gender Studies, Politics, and Sports Culture. The diversity of Allison’s research demonstrates her ability to think and work in a multidisciplinary environment. She is able to use her diverse knowledge and experience to work with her fellow board members to maintain the important multidisciplinary nature of the MPCA/ACA and continue to encourage and to assist academics of all levels in the study of popular culture and the cultures of the Americas. Allison also has experience organizing and working at large events. For many years she organized debate tournaments for multiple schools in the St. Louis area with 500 or more student competitors. In addition, she has experience organizing fundraising events for multiple non-profits serving underserved youth. Her non-profit work extended to a term as the director of the St. Louis Urban Debate League, which provides critical thinking and debate opportunities to underserved students in St. Louis City schools. Among her achievements as director, one of her teams was the first urban debater’s in the metro area to qualify for the largest national debate tournament in the country and the program had a 100% graduation rate and all the students enrolled in a college program. Eric Newsom. Morals taught in our movies and music, connotations of our comics and curios, symbols spread through our sitcoms and sports are formative to us as individuals and inextricable from our societal processes. Thus, study of popular culture is essential in understanding the

24

contemporary world that creates and consumes it. I’ve long felt this, but it was at the 2009 MPCA/ACA Conference, the first academic conference I attended in the first year of my doctoral program, that I felt truly supported in this view. Going from room to room, panel to panel, I was excited by the work presented, and enthusiastic in a way I'd not felt before about the future of my own work. I strongly support the organization's environment of welcome, especially for graduate and undergraduate students. I study storytelling. My recent co-authored book on the Slender Man looked past media panic to focus on the folk-like processes that birthed the character. Other research examines the impact that digital technology has had on the medium of comics. In addition to researching, I also create. My book layout and type design will be seen in comics from Oni Press, Abrams, and Image over the next two years, and I recently contributed an essay on hobo music to a serial comic coming from Image in 2017. I attended my first MPCA/ACA as a resident of New York, but now that I'm a true Midwestern Missourian, I intend to make this conference my home. Thank you.

LINDBERG Workshop I 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Workshop I is targeted at MPCA attendees interested in finding out more about publishing, both in journals and with book publishers. While primarily geared toward graduate students and early-career scholars and writers, Workshop I provides in-depth, “behind the scenes” information about publishing from colleagues and professionals who are broadly published, serve as editors and contributors for journals and books, and write and edit book projects. Featuring discussions with publishing professionals and MPCA colleagues, Workshop I offers participants the chance to talk through and ask questions about the publishing process, research and topic ideas, the writing process, and how to ferret out publishing venues. Workshop II 1:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Workshop II is a hands-on workshop for MPCA attendees who could be labeled more advanced in their publishing careers and are now searching for detailed, hands-on guidance. The focus of Workshop B is providing guidance so participants can get their scholarly articles ready for submission or write a book proposal. Workshop B participants will have the opportunity to submit book proposals and/or journal article drafts to MPCA mentors for in-depth discussion and evaluation. Also, for attendees at the brainstorming stage, journal and book editors will be there to discuss ways to shape these ideas into significant projects. Fees for workshops will be $35 for one or $60 for both. If you have questions or need additional information, please contact the Executive Secretary, Kathleen M. Turner at [email protected]

This illustrated lecture will look at the rise, fall, and rebirth of Chicago’s famous Union Stock Yards, which opened on Christmas Day 1865. Over its 105-year history the stockyards processed over one billion animals and developed as not only a major industrial center, but as a major tourist attraction. Before World War One it was estimated that some 500,000 visitors explored the livestock market and packinghouses annually. These tourists came to witness the “modern,” that is the factory system as it transformed the relationship between food and people across the world. These tours were maintained until the late 1950s by the major packers then located just west of the livestock market. When the stockyards closed in 1971 the area was reborn as an industrial park. Today some 15,000 men and women work in the old stockyard area. Dominic Pacyga will end the presentation with a look at current developments in the district, which is still the home to many of Chicago’s meat packing companies and much more.

2502. Friday 4:45-6:15. Aldrin/Crossfield. Area: Featured Speaker “The Motion Picture Theater as Historical Subject: The Last Fifty Years” Dr. Gerald R. Butters, Jr., Aurora University, Aurora. Much has been researched and written about the motion picture theater during Hollywood’s Golden Age. There have been countless studies that have illustrated the transition from nickelodeon to motion picture palace. But there has been a surprising paucity of information on the motion picture theater over the past fifty years. This address will be an attempt to rectify this issue and will be a call to my fellow film historians to research this much neglected subject. While completing my book From Sweetback to Superfly: Race and Film Audiences in Chicago’s Loop, I became keenly aware of how much we do not know about motion picture theaters over the past fifty years, the audiences drawn to these theaters, their

management, film distribution and exhibition strategy. I will illustrate from my book, some of the findings that I discovered and how this information simply led to more and more questions. I will address the geographic nature of motion picture theaters, the attempt my management to draw or discourage certain audiences based upon their age, race, ethnicity and other factors, and the ability of subaltern groups to often claim the motion picture theater as a social space, because of (or despite) the strategies of the industry.
