Call for Papers and Topic Proposals:
A Celebration of *Star Trek*

(Apologies for cross-posting)

Now accepting submissions and ideas for the fourth annual Pop Culture
Colloquium at DePaul University in Chicago!

The Media and Cinema Studies program, along with the College of Computing
and Digital Media, the English Department, and the Department of American
Studies at DePaul University is hosting a one-day celebratory colloquium in
honor the fiftieth anniversary of *Star Trek* on Saturday, May 07, from
9am-6pm. This event will feature roundtable discussions from scholars and
fans of *Supernatural*, speaking about the cultural impact of the show, as
well as analyzing aspects of the episodes. The even will also feature
keynote speaker Brannon Braga (executive producer, writer, and director of
multiple episodes and films), screenings, screenwriting workshops, a
costume contest, and more.

The audience for this event is both graduate and undergraduate students,
both fans and scholars, and the focus should be on informed and
enlightening discussion rather than formal academic papers. “A Celebration
of *Star Trek*” will take place on DePaul’s Loop campus.

If you’re interested in speaking on a round table, please send a 200 word
abstract of your topic and a CV or resume to Paul Booth (pbooth@depaul.edu)
by Mar 01. Please aim your abstracts for a more general audience and for a
discussion rather than a paper presentation. For more information, please
check out the website www.mcsdepaul.com/a-celebration-of-star-trek.html and
sign up for updates on Facebook (search “A Celebration of Star Trek”). We
hope that you will be able to join in the discussion and celebration!
