Liverpool Hope University,
June 30th – July 1st 2015
The Popular Culture research group at Liverpool Hope University welcome papers from academic 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. As well as papers from established and early career academics, we encourage proposals from graduate students:
Drama & Participation
Gender: Feminism/Femininities/Masculinities/Queering/Sexualities/Representations of the Body
Papers should be 20 minutes in length. Please send abstracts of 300 words to Dr Jacqui Miller firstname.lastname@example.org by Monday 30th March, 2015.
