• Integrating popular culture texts into more traditionally-oriented courses and disciplines;
• Interrogation and exploration of pedagogical problems or concerns, including discussions of political, racial, and/or nationalist pedagogy in relationship to the 2016 presidential election;
• Discussions about the intersections of race, ethnicity, gender, popular culture, and academia, including pedagogy; and/or
