ANTHROPOLOGY OF POPULAR CULTURE
Credit points: 15
Popular culture is everywhere. From Australian beaches to Amazonian jungles, it shapes the way we eat, dance, shop, protest, and engage with the world. In this subject we examine popular culture through such globally transforming processes as consumption and inequality, migration and mobility, and in diverse expressions of gender, identity, style and human creativity. We also examine how anthropologists use film, the internet and other media to engage diverse audiences in vibrant discussion about the experience of being human.
