Studies on Popular Culture
Publication series with Intellect Books
In April 2009, IIPC made a contract with Intellect Books on a series Studies on Popular Culture. The new series provides contributions to a critical understanding of popular culture and its history. The series covers a wide array of themes, including such fields as popular music, radio, film, and television, festivals and urban cultures, youth cultures and subcultures, consumption and material culture, sports, stardom and fandom. The series is open to methodologies and theoretical insights, especially on comparative and international approaches, and it places special emphasis on the transdisciplinary nature of popular culture studies. The series is edited at the International Institute for Popular Culture by Bruce Johnson and Hannu Salmi.
