Members of the Popular Culture Working Group are interested in the (academic) intersections that the study of popular culture evokes. Embracing insights from various disciplines such as cultural studies, media studies, gender and queer studies, theatre studies and so on, the Working Group engages with multifarious perspectives and the richness of popular culture as a field of study. From exploring hip hop fandom to conducting a political economic analysis of the television industry, the Working Group is interested in all facets of popular culture.
