On Thursday September 27, at 3:00 a.m. in the morning,
twelve Honors Scholars (+ one recent graduate) left Johnson
City to attend the 2007 Popular Culture Association in the
South Conference in Jacksonville, Florida. All thirteen
students presented papers at the conference, on panels such
as “Religion and Pop Culture,” “ Surviving the Internet in
the New Millennium,” “Retelling an Epic: A Multi-Perspective
Interpretation of Zack Snyder’s Film 300,” and “Bob Dylan:
Icon, Living Legend, and Timeless Master.” Participating
Honors Scholars included Matt Brewer, Kathleen Cronin, Kacie
Rowell, Shana Hartman, Ashish Javer, Courtney Garland,
Michelle Hammett, Maleka Khambaty, Jennifer Snyder, Marie
Porterfield, Meira Yasin, Colin Spaulding, and 2007 graduate

year that ETSU students have presented at the PCAS
Conference, and third time in last four years (nine students
presented at the 2006 Conference in Savannah, and one
student presented at the 2004 Conference in New Orleans).
