So, yesterday I submitted a paper proposal for the Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association joint conference this spring based on my honors thesis work, and when I opened my email a few minutes ago, this was waiting for me:
I have sent the PCA/ACA electronic approval from the PCA/ACA web site, but please consider this message your personal welcome to present your paper “Charlie Chaplin Eats a Shoe: The Klondike Gold Rush in Popular Culture” for the Westerns and the West Area at the PCA/ACA 2014 Conference. Your original approach to the Gold Rush promises stimulating discussion.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHH! I’M SO EXCITED!
