The DePaul Pop Culture Conference is an annual fan/academic event at DePaul University. We host
DePaul Pop Culture Conference
thoughtful discussions from fans, scholars, and media makers from around the world to engage in conversation about popular culture and cult media. 
Each conference is focused on specific theme in popular culture and cult media. Past topics include   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, the conference has raised almost $5,000 for various charities, including the ACLU, Full Flood Endowment Fund and Equality Now.​
