Joss Whedon: A Celebration

(Apologies for cross-posting)
Now accepting submissions and ideas for the second annual Pop Culture Colloquium at DePaul University in Chicago!

The Media and Cinema Studies program at DePaul University is hosting a one-day celebratory colloquium in honor of the work of Joss Whedon on Saturday, May 03, from 9-6. This event will feature roundtable discussions from scholars and fans of Whedon, speaking about the cultural impact of his work, as well as analyzing aspects of his television shows and films. The even will also feature special guests, screenings, screenwriting workshops, and (perhaps) a sing-a-long or two…

The audience for this event is both graduate and undergraduate students, both fans and scholars, and the focus should be on informed and enlightening discussion rather than formal academic papers. “Joss Whedon: A Celebration” will take place on DePaul’s Loop campus.

If you’re interested in speaking on a round table, please send a 200 word abstract of your topic and a CV or resume to Paul Booth (pbooth@depaul.edu) by Mar 01. Also please email with any questions. We hope that you will be able to join in the discussion and celebration!
