The 8th annual Popular Culture Association of Australia and New Zealand (PopCAANZ) Conference is to be held at Massey University's College of Creative Arts, Wellington, New Zealand, from June 28-30, 2017. Papers with a focus on disability in popular culture are now invited.
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.
Academics, professionals, cultural practitioners and those with a scholarly interest in disability studies and popular culture are invited to send a 150 word abstract and 100 word bio to the area chair by March 31, 2017.
PopCAANZ will publish double-blind peer reviewed Conference Proceedings online following the conference, and presenters will be invited to submit suitable articles to our new journal from June 2016, The Journal of Asia-Pacific Pop Culture (Penn State University Press).
