The Philological Association of the Carolinas (PAC) is dedicated to scholarship in modern languages and literature, including linguistics, pedagogy, and cultural studies. A regional organization with an international scope, PAC holds annual meetings in North or South Carolina that draw participants from neighboring states and beyond. As a smaller organization, PAC strives to promote scholarly exploration in a collegial spirit. The organization is dedicated to maintaining a strong community of educators, scholars, and graduate students and to providing early professionalization opportunities for undergraduates.
