Pop Culture Theory Group (5pm, Wed 6th Dec)

Our next session will be on Wednesday 6th December, from 5-7pm GMT.

Following a discussion at the end of the last session, it was decided that we all fancied something festive before we break up for the holidays, so I decided we’d focus on TV Christmas specials!

Your task, if you choose to accept it, is to read (at least some of) ‘“A Very Supernatural Christmas” as Nostalgic Holiday Special’ by Kevin J. Wetmore, Jr – which is ostensibly about Supernatural (2005-2020), but also discusses standard Christmas special tropes – and come to the session with an example of a TV Christmas special that you hold dear.

If you don’t have time to read the chapter, we’d still love to see you! For access to the reading, zoom details, and info on the room booking, email Georgie at gxr697@student.bham.ac.uk.
