EUPOP 2019: Call for Participation [fr]
Individual paper and panel contributions are welcomed for the eighth annual international conference of the European Popular Culture Association (EPCA), to be held at Mary Immaculate College, Limerick, Ireland, July 16th – 18th, 2019.
CALL FOR PAPERS - DEADLINE: 28th February 2019
EUPOP 2019, Mary Immaculate College - University of Limerick, 16-18th July 2019
EUPOP 2019 will explore European popular culture in all its various forms.
This includes, but is by no means limited to, the following topics: European Film (past and present), Television, Music, Costume and Performance, Celebrity, The Body, Fashion, New Media, Popular Literature and Graphic Novels, Queer Studies, Sport, Curation, and Digital Culture. We also welcome abstracts which explore the various ways in which notions of ‘Europeanness’ and popular culture intersect; and how the current turmoil in European identity, union, its borders and divisions is portrayed in popular cultural themes and forms.
A grant will be provided by the Embassy of France in Ireland to offer some financial assistance to some of the participants (early-career researchers or postgraduate students) who cannot avail of other sources of funding and who are currently working in a French higher education institution. These participants should indicate their willingness to be considered for that financial support when sending their paper proposal.
Call for papers ends on 28th February 2019
Dates of conference: 16-18th July 2019
Location: Mary Immaculate College - University of Limerick
