The Popular Culture Scholars' Association (PCSA) is a graduate student run organization dedicated to encouraging the study of popular culture, supporting the professional development of students pursuing a MA in Popular Culture at BGSU (POPC MAs), and linking undergraduates, graduates, educators, and outside scholars. PCSA hosts a monthly colloquium that both brings contemporary popular culture scholarship to the BGSU campus and highlights the popular culture scholarship of current BGSU undergraduates, graduates, and faculty members.

PCSA History:

PCSA was founded in the fall of 2011 in a moment of great energy and passion about popular culture studies by Popular Culture MA students, Myc Wiatrowski, Cory Barker, and Brian Keilen.

It was originally populated by both undergraduate and graduate students aimed at bringing together and engaging community members, students, alumni, professionals, and scholars who are dedicated to the creation and study of popular texts and vernacular culture.

PCSA helped to originate the Popular Culture Colloquium Series and Ray Browne Conference (now the Ray Browne Conference for Popular Culture Studies) and published a collection of the first RBC’s paper.
