POPCAANZ 10th  Anniversary International Conference


3-5 July, 2019

RMIT University Melbourne, Australia


The Popular Culture Association of Australia and New Zealand (POPCAANZ) in association with RMIT University, is marking a decade (2010-2019) devoted to the scholarly understanding of everyday cultures. The Association is concerned with the study of the social practices and the cultural meanings that are produced and  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 to abstracts@popcaanz.com by 31 March, 2019.  Queries regarding the Queer and Gender area should be sent to gender@popcaanz.com


PopCAANZ will publish double-blind peer reviewed Conference Proceedings online following the conference, and presenters will be invited to submit suitable articles to the Association’s official journal, The Journal of Asia- Pacific Pop Culture (Penn State University Press). For further Conference information (including a full list of Subject areas), please go to:  www.popcaanz.com
