Pop West: A foundation for understanding multiple global wests as mediated by popular culture : A symposium on popular culture and geographical 'wests' Other events...
The Pop West research project will analyse a range of popular media–film, music, radio, television, storytelling, maps and novels–to explore how different political formations come to popularise and understand their own wests.

The Pop West Project began in late 2013 when researchers from The University of Western Australia and the US Studies Centre at the University of Sydney began discussing the role that popular culture plays in our understanding of political geography. In 2014, the newly-established Perth USAsia Centre provided seed-funding to propel this exciting new research inquiry.

On Thursday 24 and Friday 25 July, UWA will host a series of panel papers and lectures on the issue of how political geographies are mediated by the popular imagination. The symposium offers a special triangulation of Australian, Chinese and American wests, suggesting that the west is a migrating geographic and cultural concept.

The Pop West Symposium is open to the public. If you'd like to attend the opening lecture (Thursday 24 July) or the Symposium (Friday 25 July), please RSVP by emailing [email protected]
Speaker(s) W/Prof Jill Milroy, Prof Kieran Dolin, Prof Kevin Latham, Prof Krita Comer, A/Prof Tony Hughes-d'Aeth and others
