Popular Culture

What is considered popular culture is up for debate. This course examines different ideas about popular culture and how they inform our personal politics, consumption practices, and common-sense ideas about the world. We consider how different cultural industries are shaped, packaged for consumption, but sometimes resisted. Using a critical approach we sociologically examine cultural forms such as advertising, social activism, television, the cult of celebrity, music, electronic and film media, leisure customs, and everyday practices.
