By looking critically at a range of popular artifacts including literary/cultural criticism, short stories, aritcles, essays, photos, songs, films and television episodes, students learn to "read" them more critically and actively. At the end of the semester students should be able to explain the social, historical, political, and cultural contexts surrounding popular culture and the ideologies it carries, including the ways it is exported to, and influenced by, other cultures and groups.
