Dear CSAA Colleagues,
Please see below regarding the Popular Culture Research Centre's 2020 conference.
An Interdisciplinary Conference on Storytelling and Identity in Popular Culture
The Popular Culture Research Centre (Auckland University of Technology) welcomes papers for its upcoming interdisciplinary conference on the theme of 'storytelling and identity' in popular culture. The conference will be held in Auckland on 7-9 July 2020.
The conference aims to bring together researchers in the field, and foster important interdisciplinary scholarly conversations in popular culture. Practices of storytelling are at the centre of the ways in which popular culture disseminates information.
>From film to television, from Twitter accounts to the latest fandom trend, popular culture provides us with an arena where our narratives of the everyday can transform from immaterial notions to very material and tangible objects of consumption. Popular culture is privileged in its ability to both reflect and influence our identities, and the way we live, in our twenty-first century context.
