Popular Culture in the Mass Media (3 crs)

This course will examine key issues related to popular culture and its representation in different media. In an attempt to focus and organize our consideration of this rather nebulous phenomenon, we will approach the course theme in three ways. First, we will discuss some narratives about popular culture. Second, we will then study the role of narrative in popular culture (and its importance in how we make sense of the world in general). Third, we will explore a couple of the most prevalent “pop culture” genres such as a gangster film, a mystery novel and others. 

Prerequisites: Concurrent or prior enrollment in Liberal Studies 209 or department consent.
