We are pleased to announce the establishment of a monthly series of seminars in which IIPC presents current research in a range of
popular cultures. Anyone who has an interest in the field is warmly invited to attend and participate. Each seminar will consist of an
opening presentation, followed by open debate from the floor.
The presenters as well as audiences will represent a range of research fields, so that the debates will be fruitful exchange across
disciplines. The sessions will be conducted in both English and Finnish, depending on the presenter.
They will normally take place in the Sirkkala lecture hall
(University of Turku, Kaivokatu 12, 1st floor) on the first Tuesday of each month, from 16.00
The inaugural IIPC Debate was presented on 12 January 2010 by Professor Bruce Johnson, of the Department of Cultural History, University
of Turku; the
Department of Music, Media and Cultural Studies, Macquarie University Australia; and the Department of Music, University of Glasgow, UK.
With Professor Hannu Salmi, Professor Johnson was a co-founder of IIPC.
