Popular culture and social transformation

International conference in Oslo, 4-5 October 2012. This conference will ask why and how to study popular culture’s role in understanding social transformations, society and politics. We invite papers from the humanities and social sciences presenting concrete case studies as well as addressing the overarching theoretical questions. The two keynote speakers, Simon Lindgren and Jason Dittmer, will present on the theoretical and methodological aspects of popular culture, and we will accommodate for ample room for discussion and cross-disciplinary fertilization.
