About the Conference

The DePaul Pop Culture Conference is an annual fan/academic event at DePaul University. Bringing together fans, scholars, and media makers from around the world, each conference focuses on a specific theme in popular culture and cult media. Past topics include Disney, Harry Potter, Star Trek, Supernatural, and Doctor Who.

A keynote speaker nominates a charity for the conference to support each year. Attendees, speakers and fans can donate to the charity in a number of ways: silent auction, baked goods, monetary contributions or t-shirt sales. All together, the conference has raised over $6,000 for various charities, including the ACLU, Full Flood Endowment Fund, and Equality Now.
