Inventing Popular Culture
This course examines the history of popular culture, starting in the 19th century, seeking to define popular culture and understand its relationship to the formation of modern society. It considers such topics as the ideological use of popular culture, debates surrounding culture, notions of nation and community, and the growing dominance of commercial culture during a period when technology, human migration, and other factors increasingly blurred the boundaries of earlier cultural and social understanding. (Formerly HST 115).
