POPVision: U2 Conference announces 2018 event in Belfast

U2 Conference 2018: POPVision

The U2 Conference will return next year for its third event, and its first one outside the United States. It's scheduled for June 13-15, 2018, at Queen's University in Belfast, Northern Ireland. (The previous two conferences, in 2009 and 2013, were held in Raleigh/Durham and Cleveland, respectively.)

The theme for next year's conference is POPVision, and like the 2013 event, it'll feature both academic and general audience session content. Here's how the theme is described on the conference website:

As a conference theme, U2: POPVision invites investigating, articulating and critiquing the guiding visions specific to U2’s Pop era of 1997-98 for their efficacy then and now, as well as welcoming an examination of popular music’s power to cast visions that shape its own narrative and construct and complicate larger cultural conversations, in which U2’s visions have long been engaged.

Interested speakers can read the Call for Proposals; the submission deadline is December 15. Interested attendees can see the full conference program and register on February 1, 2018.

@U2 staffer Scott Calhoun is organizing the conference again.
