Popular Culture’ is a Gateway Education course that will introduce students to the theory and practice of popular cultural. We are surrounded by popular culture and practices, and popular culture influences the ways we imagine, think and feel about ourselves and our social worlds. Now with easier access to resources and technology, we are increasingly both consuming and producing popular culture. Beginning with an introduction to theories of popular cultural studies, the students will explore the ways in which popular culture is produced and consumed. Combining the use of local and global authentic texts, the course will engage students to think and write critically about popular culture.
