Description

This subject explores the histories, complexities and contradictions of popular culture, with a particular focus on the 20th and 21st centuries. In this subject, students critically interrogate various forms of popular culture and reflect on their own participation, identity formation and fandom with respect to popular cultural artefacts. The subject addresses a number of key popular cultural topics facing individuals and communities, including climate change, race, (dis)ability, and the invasion of digital technologies into everyday life. Students explore diverse meanings and forms of popular culture, identifying how they position individuals, groups and communities and the political and ethical consequences of these positionings, as well as how they articulate the values and beliefs of the society and individuals that produce and use them.
