DePaul Pop Culture Conference

Pop Culture Conference logo
The DePaul Pop Culture Conference is an annual day-long fandom and academic event. Fans, scholars and media makers gather to examine popular culture and cult media, with past topics including Harry PotterStar Trek, Doctor Who, the television and film works of Joss Whedon, and the popular television series Supernatural

Each year, a keynote speaker nominates a charity for the conference to support. 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, we've raised almost $5,000 for various charities, including the ACLU, Full Flood Endowment Fund and Equality Now.
