TitelThe Cultures of Popular Culture
BeschreibungThe Cultures of Popular Culture. Biennial conference of the Royal Irish
Academy Committee for Modern Languages, Literary and Cultural Studies

Queen's University, Belfast, 13th - 14th December 2013

Call for Papers
Popular Culture has long been absent from the syllabus, eschewed by
researchers and viewed condescendingly sometimes even by its most adept
practitioners. It has come a long way to become the thriving academic
discipline it is today. Just as the term Popular Culture describes the
widest range of practices, Popular Culture Studies cover the most
heterogeneous objects. While this very diversity makes it exciting as a
research field, it presents a challenge in terms of methods and
approaches. To promote scientific exchanges at international level,
Popular Culture Studies need elements of comparability and theorization.
The biennial conference of the Royal Irish Academy, hosted by the School
of Modern Languages at Queen's University Belfast, intends to offer a
forum for discussion between academics, teaching and researching in the
fields of Popular Cultures. It will consider the benefits of studying
Popular Cultures in Modern Languages Studies and seek to map current
areas of research. It presents a distinctive opportunity to discuss
corpora and contrast approaches.
