Popular Culture and the Media SSCI 9023 Online OntarioLearn Email to a Friend OntarioLearn description: In this course students will answer the question 'Why?' by using cultural analysis to connect what's 'popular' to what's going on in our society. By taking a closer look at the movies and television shows they watch, the clothes they wear, and the music they listen to, students will endeavour to understand the role of popular culture in maintaining and reproducing the kind of society we live in. What messages are intended by the producers of mass media and what messages are received by their consumers? Popular culture will be investigated from a sociological perspective with an emphasis on North America with Canadian content as available. Note(s) This is an online course delivered via OntarioLearn.
