The Popular Culture and Pedagogy Conference



The second annual Popular Culture and Pedagogy Conference ( will take place on July 15th, 2020. 


The theme of the conference will be:

Using Popular Culture in Online and Emergency Remote Teaching 



A part of effective teaching is learning from our peers. The goal of The Popular Culture and Pedagogy Conference is to share successes as well as potential teaching practices for other scholars and educators to borrow and learn from while creating a space where we can share feedback, and reflection on how we can employ popular culture in the classroom. Originally we planned for #POPC2 to be in the fall but the accelerated timeline of this conference came about as many of us are unsure if we will be teaching online or in-person next semester.  This allows for an exchange of ideas after our emergency remote teaching ends and before (or during) our planning for the next semester.  



In #POPC2 we want to continue the discussion we had last year. The discussion featured exciting and unique approaches and resources that can aid educators in using popular culture to reach students. This time around we are specifically interested in how instructors utilized Popular Culture during Emergency Remote Teaching and how those who regularly teach online use Popular Culture. 

We welcome people from all academic disciplines including but not limited to Sociology, Psychology, History, Philosophy, Communication, English Literature, Religion, and Rhetoric and Composition. We also welcome and encourage K-12 teachers to submit.
