EPOP - Popular Roots of European Culture through Film, Comics and Serialized Literature is a research and popularization project funded by the European Commission in the frame of the Culture Programme 2007 and is promoted by the Department of Music and Performing Arts of the University of Bologna (Italy), the Faculty of Humanities of the University of Limoges(France), the Pallas Institute for Art Historical and Literature Studies University of Leiden (the Netherlands), the GRIT (Groupe des Recherche sur l’Image et le Texte) of the Catholic University of Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium), and the Cultural Affaris Department of the Province of Pescara (Italy).
The EPOP project deals with the serial fictions produced by European culture industries between mid-XIXth century and early XXth century and aims to surpass the cultural and linguistic boundaries that have until now prevented a true appraisal of the continental dimension of this phenomenon by establishing a transnational network of researchers and institutions working to promote a better knowledge of this particular cultural heritage among EU citizens.
The project started on November 24, 2008 and will be completed on May 24, 2010.
