About

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, material forms and audiences. This may include European Film (past and present), Television, Music, Celebrity, The Body, Fashion, New Media, Comics and Popular Literature, Games and Gaming, Sport, Heritage, and Curation. At our annual EUPOP conference, specialist streams include themes such as Violence (Horror), Commodification of Popular Culture, Sport, Spirituality (the Occult), Nationalism and its Ideological Forms, Paganism (Celtic Studies, Nordic Mythologies), and Technology. The EPCA aims to examine and discuss these different aspects as they relate both to Europe and to Europeans across the globe, whether contemporary or historical.

EPCA is affiliated with the following institutions:

Popular Culture Association/American Culture Association(PCA/ACA, USA):

The International Institute for Popular Culture (IIPC, Finland):
