Psychology and Popular Culture

Primary tabs

Call for papers: 



National Conference Boston!

For information on PCA/ACA and the conference, please go to http://pcaaca.org


The Psychology and Popular Culture area invites all interested persons to present among a broad array of topics inclusive of psychology and popular culture. Previous presentations have included literature, film, gender theory, music, politics, religion, psychological theory, psychiatry, mindfulness, cognitive psychology, psychoanalysis, critical theory, research and more. In short, the division concerns itself with the ways in which popular culture both reflects and shapes the nature of our psychology.


Please consider submitting a 150-300 word abstract through the online database: https://conference.pcaaca.org.
