Welcome to the PCA!

The Popular Culture Association (formally the Popular Culture Association / American Culture Association) is an academic organization devoted to promoting the study of popular culture. We were founded in 1971 by Ray and Pat Browne, and have met regularly since–bringing together scholars from around the world to develop ideas and learn from one another. We hold a yearly conference, publish two journals, and work with several regional and international affiliates to promote the field.  Take a look around to learn more about the organization and what we can offer you.

We’re currently accepting proposals for the 2018 conference.
