SOC 372 - Sociology of Popular Culture


This course will explore the wide ranging concept of popular culture and its significant place and role in people’s everyday lives. We will explore the intersections of popular culture with important sociological organizations such as the media, the culture industry, and religious institutions, in addition to the social topics such as race and ethnicity, social inequalities, and gender and sexuality. Specific readings and research will focus on today’s changing practices of cultural production and consumption in areas such as fashion and style, music and art, eating and food, tourism and globalism, and television, film and the internet.
