Panels on Popular Culture

These panels use popular culture as a mechanism to analyze how gender, race, class, sexuality, disability, and other identities are represented in mainstream media. Past Panels on Popular Culture have tackled questions like "What does The Hunger Games popularity say about feminism, race, and the role of women?" and "Is the Game of Thrones empowering for women?" Join us for these panels on popular culture as we debate and discuss the role that popular culture plays in shaping our lives.
