As the current COVID-19 pandemic is still looming over us, popular culture continues to change and adapt. A great paper for the upcoming conference could analyze how COVID-19 has impacted popular culture and how we interpret information in the media. There are a plethora of other possibilities regarding paper topics and COVID-19. Focussing on our resilience and perseverance aligns closely with our conference theme of “Crisis, Culture, and Communities”. We cannot wait to see what you all come up with.
