ARMY MAGAZINE AT RHIZOME CONNECT
We are happy to be featured in the Rhizome Connect Conference on the ARMY PUBLISHERS PANEL and the Discord Q&A. Both events will pull back the curtains on ARMY MAGAZINE, answer some of your burning questions and give you some insight into our team and our organization. We are very honored and excited to be a part of this amazing event!
PANEL TO BE RESCHEDULED
Often, there are misconceptions about the ways that people working in academic fields balancing being a “professional” and being a “fan.” In this presentation, we will discuss how we have encountered these misconceptions and perceptions of being a fan doing academic work or an academic doing fan work. Perhaps the lines between the two are not so clear? Perhaps the lines between any of these aspects of our lives are not so clear?

May 1-2, 2021. California State University Northridge
In January 2020, a groundbreaking inclusive inter and multi-disciplinary conference was held at Kingston College in London UK, examining the success and popularity of the Kpop group BTS from a variety of perspectives.
It was clear by the more than 150 presentations that a second conference is both desirable and necessary to continue to explore the phenomenon that is and surrounds BTS. A second conference will take place on the campus of California State University Northridge (30 miles from central Los Angeles) on May 2-3, 2021.
This conference will bring together academics, fans, music and media industry practitioners in a supportive and inclusive space to talk, debate and share ideas about BTS. Issues may relate to music, fandom, education, film and media, performance art, culture, fashion and so on.

Plenary speakers will be Dr. Colette Balmain (Kingston University London) co-editor of Korean Screen Cultures: Interrogating Cinema, TV, Music and Online Games and Dr. Crystal Anderson (George Mason University), director of KPK: Kpop Kollective (https://kpopkollective.com) and author of Soul in Seoul: Black Popular Music and Kpop.
Submissions are welcome across a range of topics including, but not limited to:
