Popular Culture and Politics’

 La Rochelle Université-Université de Reims

To be held at: La Rochelle University (France) from 11th to 13th December 2019

 

The ambition of this conference is to explore the close links, hidden or implicit, that exist between popular culture and politics. Indeed, politics may attempt to subvert popular culture, or may be an object of ridicule or praise in Popular Culture, and it would therefore be of great interest to investigate this research field, which is relatively unexplored in France and which mixes two sometimes contradictory and conflicting spheres.
