Course Description

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.

Notes

This course is fully online and asynchronous, meaning you typically will not have to be online at specific times. You will engage in course-related activities through online tools such as announcements, discussions, and email. Your course learning will be based on weekly module content and activities that you can go through independently. Note: there are still deadlines for assignment submissions, and you may be expected to participate in discussion board interactions with your peers on a regular basis.

Your instructor may also include occasional scheduled sessions for Q&As and other discussion activities, using web conferencing tools such as Zoom and Google Meet. More details will be included in your course outline available on the first day of class.
