Since 1983, the Philological Association of the Carolinas (PAC) has published Postscript, a peer-reviewed, annual selection of papers presented at the yearly meeting of the PAC. As a conference dedicated to interdisciplinary exchange, PAC papers conference have traditionally covered a multitude of topics and have included literary scholarship, criticism, and theory, linguistic studies, criticism of film and folklore, and pedagogy. Postscript strives to maintain the kind of interdisciplinary exchange fostered by the conference itself.
Authors published with PostScript retain copyright and reprint permissions with the understanding that PostScript is an open access online journal indexed by EBSCO.
A Brief History
After six successful PAC conferences, Postscript was first published and originally published selected proceedings of the conference.
In March of 2006, the business meeting of the twenty-ninth PAC conference approved a motion to convert Postscript into a web-based journal, beginning with the 2007 edition. It made sense as part of that process to make the past issues, volumes 1-23, available on the web at the same time.
In March of 2010, the PAC Executive Board opened submissions to Postscript to non-PAC members, providing that those whose essays are published become PAC members.
