The European Popular Culture Association
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. 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.
