Description: Love it or hate it, popular culture permeates every aspect of contemporary society. In this introduction to the sociology of popular culture, Dustin Kidd provides the tools to think critically about the cultural soup served daily by film, television, music, print media, and the internet.In Pop Culture Freaks, Kidd highlights the tension between inclusion and individuality that lies beneath mass media and commercial culture, using this tension as a point of entry to an otherwise expansive topic. He systematically considers several dimensions of identityrace, class, gender, sexuality, disabilityto provide a broad overview of the field that encompasses classical and contemporary theory; original data; topical and timely examples; and a strong pedagogical focus on methods. Utilizing each chapter to present core topical and timely examples, Kidd’s accessible writing encourages students to develop further research questions and projects from the material. Both quantitative and qualitative analysis are brought to bear in Kidd’s examination of the labor force for cultural production, the representations of identity in cultural objects, and the surprising differences in how various audiences consume and use mass culture in their everyday lives.
