PCA/ACA: It begins

Today, the 2011 conference of the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association begins. In just a few hours, I’ll be attending my first panel, and as the conference carries on over the next few days, I’ll be posting updates of the panels I’ve attended and the things I’m learning.

To which end: the poll results (however skimpy they are for now) are in, and I have my assignments for today: I’m attending a panel on sight and sound in the horror genre, and I’ll be at three (count them — three!) comics panels, including a special discussion on Alan Moore. There’s also a fiction panel I hope to attend, but we’ll see if I make it.

It’s still not too late to give me my assignments for the rest of the conference, though. Check out my poll page for PCA/ACA in SA, April 2011 to vote for the panels you’d like me to attend. I’ll be deciding on tomorrow’s panels later this afternoon, and I’ll start choosing the rest tonight or tomorrow, so head over to the poll page and vote now to give me homework!
