Primary Instructor:


What is popular culture? Music, television, radio, advertising, sports, comic books? Is the term limited to folklore or culture created by the people, by a community? Does it refer to mainstream cultural forms that are ubiquitous within a society? Is it synonymous with mass culture? Can we use the term to refer to less commonly known creative efforts that come from grassroots movements? This course will attempt to answer all of these questions within the Spanish contemporary context by looking at music, television, cinema, or comic while exploring the complex relationships between popular culture and power.

This course counts as elective credit for the Spanish minor.
