PopCAANZ 2015: Extended Call for Papers

The Popular Culture Association of Australia and New Zealand (PopCAANZ) is calling for the submission of abstracts for its 6th Annual Conference in Wellington, New Zealand, 29 June-1 July 2015.

The Popular Culture Association of Australia and New Zealand (PopCAANZ) is devoted to the scholarly understanding of everyday cultures. It is concerned with the study of the social practices and the cultural meanings that are produced and are circulated through the processes and practices of everyday life. As a product of consumption, an intellectual object of inquiry, and as an integral component of the dynamic forces that shape societies.

We invite academics, professionals, cultural practitioners and those with a scholarly interest in popular culture, to send a 150 word abstract and 100 word bio by March 31, 2015, to the area chairs listed below.
