Theorising the Popular Conference 2018

Liverpool Hope University, July 11th-12th 2018

The Popular Culture Research Group at Liverpool Hope University is delighted to announce its eighth annual international conference, ‘Theorising the Popular’. Building on the success of previous years, the 2018 conference aims to highlight the intellectual originality, depth and breadth of ‘popular’ disciplines, as well as their academic relationship with and within ‘traditional’ subjects. One of its chief goals will be to generate debate that challenges academic hierarchies and cuts across disciplinary barriers.

The conference invites submissions from a broad range of disciplines, and is particularly interested in new ways of researching ‘popular’ forms of communication and culture. In addition to papers from established and early career academics, we encourage proposals from postgraduate students.

Possible topics include, but are not limited to:

Film and Television
Media and Communications
Politics and Populism
Popular Protest
Literature (Fiction and Non-Fiction)
Drama and Performance
Fan Cultures
Social Media
Games Studies
Gender: Feminism/Femininities/Masculinities/Queering/Sexualities/Representations of the Body

The conference will be held at Liverpool Hope’s main campus, Hope Park. Situated in a pleasant suburb of Liverpool, just four miles from the city centre, Hope Park offers superb facilities in beautiful surroundings.

Papers should be 20 minutes in length. Please send abstracts of 300 words to Dr Joshua Gulam and Dr Jacqui Miller ( by March 23rd 2018. The abstract should include your name, email address, affiliation, as well as the title of your paper.

Successful abstracts will be notified by April 9th 2018.

Conference fees:

£100 for both days, including lunch and all refreshments (£80 for students and concessions). £50 for one day, including lunch and all refreshments (£40 for students and concessions).
