SOC380.12 Popular Culture

This course explores the theoretical perspectives developed in social sciences about “mass culture” and, by the theoretical tools of these perspectives, critically examines the phenomenon of popular culture. Who are the producers and consumers of popular culture? The course eventually explores various theorists and theories, such as Raymond Williams, Stuart Hall, Marxisms, Structuralists, Postmodernists and others, to find a better perspective for understanding popular culture.
