Conference Registration Information

Southwest Popular/American Culture Association 45th Annual Conference

Registration:

Please be aware that this will be a fully in-person conference. We understand that virtual options are important to ensure access for a variety of scholars who may not be able to attend an in-person conference. As such, keep an eye out for details about our next Summer Salon to take place in June 2024. We will begin accepting proposals in March!

All conference attendees, whether presenting or not, are expected to register for the conference. Please note, if you plan on presenting, you should register after you find out that your proposed presentation has been accepted.

How is my registration fee used?

SWPACA is an independent non-profit organization; we are neither associated with nor supported by any institution or organization. All PCAs in the US (including Nationals) are independent of one another. Our executive team, area chairs, and awards judges are all volunteers and do not receive any compensation for their work. Putting on a conference of this size requires substantial costs related to conference spaces, presentation rooms, technology, and other amenities; your registration fee allows us to meet these costs.
