Theorising the Popular Conference June 28th-29th 2016

Liverpool Hope University
June 28th-29th 2016
The Popular Culture research group at Liverpool Hope University welcome papers from academics and graduate students for its sixth annual international conference, ‘Theorising the Popular’. Its aim is to demonstrate the intellectual originality, depth and breadth of ‘popular’ disciplines, as well as their academic relationship with and within ‘traditional’ subjects. The group breaks down disciplinary barriers and challenges academic hierarchies.

We would especially welcome papers in the following areas, although we invite proposals from all disciplines. As well as papers from established and early career academics, we encourage proposals from graduate students:

  • Film
  • TV
  • Music
  • Drama & Participation
  • Gender:Feminism/Femininities/Masculinities/Queering/Sexualities/Representations of the Body
  • Literature/Fiction
  • Language/Linguistics
  • Fan Cultures
  • Comedy
  • Politics
  • Sport
  • Media/Communications
  • Business Studies

Papers should be 20 minutes in length. Please send abstracts of 300 words to Dr Jacqui Miller millerj@hope.ac.uk by Thursday 31st March, 2016
