July 30th-July 1st 2014

The Popular Culture research group at Liverpool Hope University welcome papers from academics and graduate students for its fifth 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:

Film
TV
Music
Drama & Participation
Gender: Feminism/Femininities/Masculinities/Queering/Sexualities/Representations of the Body
Literature
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 April 30th 2014
