About the event
An intersectional, interdisciplinary conference spotlighting the hidden, marginalised or forgotten women in popular culture across historyAbout this event
Women’s contributions to the cultural industries throughout history (whether as producers, workers, or audiences) have been erased or diminished in both academic and mainstream discussion – and the field of popular culture is no exception. Therefore, this conference will elevate, interrogate and celebrate two intersecting areas of marginalised discourse: the role of women within popular culture.
