The Northeast Popular/American Culture Association (NEPCA) is a regional affiliate of the Popular Culture Association and American Culture Association. The purpose of NEPCA is to encourage and assist research, publication, and teaching on popular culture and culture studies topics by scholars in the northeast region of the United States. By bringing together scholars from various disciplines, both academic and non-academic people, NEPCA fosters interdisciplinary research and learning. Providence College and Dr. Robert Hackey (2014 Program Chair and 2015 NEPCA President) hosted the NEPCA 2014 annual conference. Julie A. DeCesare coordinated the exhibit (Oct. 2014 - Jan. 2015) in Phillips Memorial Library+Commons to highlight attending authors from NEPCA and Providence College.
