The Conference:

The POP-UP academic conference is a two-day, virtual, multidisciplinary gathering of academics whose scholarly research interests include various aspects of global popular culture and the larger conversations surrounding these aspects. Interdisciplinary approaches are also welcome.


The POP-UP academic conference is seeking 15-minute-long individual presentations and 45-minute-long panel presentations on popular culture and how the aspects examined affect the broader culture we live in. Our theme for this conference is “What brings you joy in popular culture?”
