Erudition is our Mission
HACC-Con is a multidisciplinary research conference held each semester at the Harrisburg campus. The general theme of HACC-Con is “pop culture”; however, other topics are welcomed.
Previous presentations have examined aspects of social media, television shows, commercials, movies, sporting events, music videos, song lyrics, video games, magazines, books, and newspapers. Other studies have examined a variety of social issues, including inequality, homelessness, alcoholism, drug use, eating disorders, poverty, sexual assault, environmental problems, body image, and political concerns.
