What roles do memes, mash-ups, and other forms of (digital) popular culture play in a democratic society? This event invites Dr Lyndon Way from the University of Liverpool to share his expertise in critically examining relations between popular music, society, and politics.
Participants have the opportunity to join an open lecture and discussion (9:00-10:00), in which Dr. Way will apply his approaches to digital popular culture related to Brexit. For those especially interested in studying politics and digital popular culture, a masterclass following the lecture will be also offered (10:30-13:00). In the masterclass, registered graduate students and doctoral candidates will briefly present their research (plans) and receive detailed feedback from Dr Way as well as other participants.
