Research groups and centres
Popular Culture Research Network
The Popular Culture Research Network is a gathering of academic staff and postgraduates at Leeds and elsewhere who have teaching and research interests in popular culture. The network promotes an open, pluralistic and evolving sense of what is meant by 'popular culture' and encourages dialogue between modern languages disciplines and the well-established perspectives of Anglophone cultural studies.
