HUMI 6
Popular Culture


Course Description

This course utilizes the methods of the humanities in a critical analysis of popular culture. This inquiry is framed in multicultural, historical and political contexts and will evaluate how popular culture is created and sustained by mass media and techniques of mass production, marketing, and distribution. Students examine how social meaning is constructed by the "texts" of popular culture in a constantly changing era of globalization of information and economies.
