The European Popular Culture Association inaugural conference
London: 11-13 July

Fresh off the back of a successful trip to Melbourne to attend the Popular Culture Association of Australia and New Zealand 3rd Annual Conference we will be attending another Popular Culture Association conference this week, but this one is  being held in good old Blighty.

This week will bring together scholars from across the globe to celebrate and illuminate the study of European Popular Culture as London plays host to the Inaugural European Popular Culture Association Annual Conference, which will be held at the London College of Fashion.

The conference runs from Wednesday 11th through to Friday 13th July but it is still not too late to take part as day rate tickets are still available and Intellect authors and editors are entitled to a special discount, please contact James Campbell (james@intellectbooks.com) for more details.

EUPOP 2012 will explore European popular culture in all its different forms. This might include European Film (past and present), Television, Music, Celebrity, The Body, Fashion, New Media, Comics, Popular Literature, Sport, Heritage and Curation.

This conference will launch the European Popular Culture Association. There will be opportunities for networking and for developing caucus groups within the EPCA. Presenters at EUPOP2012 will be encouraged to develop their papers for publication in a number of Intellect journals, including the new Journal of European Popular Culture, the journal of the EPCA, other film journals including Film, Fashion and Consumption, and various music journals. Journal editors will be working closely with strand convenors - a full list of Intellect journals is available at: http://www.intellectbooks.co.uk/journals/index/.

The European Popular Culture Association
The European Popular Culture Association (EPCA) promotes the study of popular culture from, in, and about Europe. Popular culture involves a wide range of activities, outcomes and audiences; EPCA aims to examine and discuss these different activities as they relate both to Europe, and to Europeans across the globe, whether contemporary or historical.
