It’s been TWENTY years of the formal academic study of popular culture studies at Schreiner University, and the Popular Culture Symposium has been the showcase for many Students, Faculty and Staff to present thoughts, research or perspectives over the years. That showcase has become part of POP CON! The event has expanded to include populations of other universities and communities as well. Below is a list of last year’s presentations.
Evan Klaff, “Mental Illness in the Comic Books”
Stevie Martinez, “DJMax Technika Q”
Dr. Brian Bernard, “Fanediting: A Technological Successor to Fan Fiction”
Dominic Mason, “Living in a ‘Super World'”
Thomas Uptergrove, “Compassion v. Self-Presentation: Conflict in Video Games”
“If it ain’t popular, it ain’t culture!” Dr. William Woods
We are currently accepting proposals to present at this year’s POP CON to join in the amazing Student, Faculty and Staff presentations of the Symposium. If you are interested and would like to join our list of speakers please fill out our Call for Proposals form HERE.
