The Politics of Pop Culture 2018

Popular culture is often deemed to be ‘unworthy’ of analysis, yet it is essential in producing our knowledge of the world and each other.  This conference, co-organised by myself and Frankie Rogan, brought together interdisciplinary scholarship on issues of race, gender, disability, sexuality and class within popular culture.  There were a range of fascinating presentations, which opened up space for exciting conversations about the political in popular culture. Thanks to Dr. Emma Foster for her help in organising the event and GAFT (Gender and Feminist Theory group) for funding the event.

This blog documents some of the great work that was shared on the day:
