"Pop Hero an Action Princess? Negotiating Gender in Popular Culture"

Münster, January 12-13, 2018

Popular culture has long since become an important medium of societal discourse. Being far more than mere expression of aesthetics, popular culture is a battleground where social and political power structures are inscribed and (re)affirmed, but can also be contested or challenged. The conference aims to address the role of gender in popular culture, how it is represented and read. The discussion will focus on the political power of such representations and their impact on cultural practices; their critical and subversive potential. If you are a student interested in presenting a 20 minute talk at this conference, please submit a short proposal (max. 250 words) with a short biography and your current study program to by November, 10 2017.
