About Popular Culture and World Politics 8 

PCWP8 continues to reimagine and foreground questions of both popular culture in world politics and the world politics of popular culture. Bringing scholars from a variety of academic disciplines into an interdisciplinary space, previous PCWP conferences have encouraged critical, creative and collaborative engagement with a broad range of topics.
PCWP8 seeks to interrogate the cultural, ethical and political significance of worlding in contemporary global politics.

You can find out more information about PCWP8 on the conference website.
