International Conference:“Popular Culture and Social Transformation”

What can we learn about social transformations from popular culture?

The two- day conference, entitled “Popular Culture and Social Transformation”,  will be held in Oslo on 4-5 October 2012.

The aim of the conference is through a variety of sessions and topics to address how popular culture is not only a mirror of society, but also a crucial element of power; the keynote speakers are Simon Lindgren and Jason Dittmer.

Update: the deadline for abstracts has been extended, the new one is May 25th, 2012.

For those interested in joining the conference, the call for papers is available here.
