Popular Culture and World Politics Conference, held at the Balsillie School of International Affairs, aims to extend existing scholarly efforts to understand how politics, media, celebrities and “entertainment” are shaping and being shaped by political decision-making in numerous venues.​ While continuing the main scholarly focus in the field on identity, conflict and diplomacy the conference aims to broaden the research agenda to tackle contemporary global policy and such challenging international crises as climate change, health emergencies and forced migration. 

The conference is jointly presented by the University of Waterloo, Wilfrid Laurier University, and the Balsillie School of International Affairs.
