Far West Popular Culture Association

Established in 1988 as a regional division of the national Popular Culture and American Culture Associations, FWPCA and FWACA foster study of all aspects of popular culture worldwide as well as all aspects of American culture. At our conferences held yearly in Las Vegas, we welcome papers in these areas from interested scholars in all disciplines. This multidisciplinary approach makes for a lively exchange of ideas in a most collegial atmosphere. We are student friendly, as our graduate student participants can testify. FWPCA/ACA also sponsors the Popular Culture Review, a lively forum for ideas. PCR, now in its 20th year of publication, is rigorously refereed and is published twice yearly: in Winter and Summer.
