The US Representation in Popular Media and Culture

PopMeC is an academic collective interested in investigating the articulation of the numerous and heterogeneous representations which have been constructing images of the US. The research group's work is focused on how the US—their history, society, and diverse cultures—have been represented in popular media and cultural products. The peculiarities of the American society can indeed be traced through the analysis of popular culture and multimodal cultural expressions, conveyed by means such as film, comics and graphic novels, TV and web series, videogames. The group will approach cultural products—as well as their publics and reception—from an intersectional, multidisciplinary standpoint and a diverse range of perspectives. The fundamental interest of the research group is to build a stimulating environment for any interested scholar, promoting the sharing of knowledge, experience, and ideas, across disciplines and thematic fields. A participative, interactive collaboration will be fostered, in particular allowing early career participants to receive feedback and support in an academic safe space.
