Cultural Theory and Popular Culture A Reader
The aim of this reader is twofold; on the one hand, it is designed as a companion volume to John Storey's "An Introductory Guide to Cultural Theory and Popular Culture" and on the other, as a free-standing, theoretical, analytical and historical introduction to the study of popular culture within cultural studies. The first six parts each contain a representative selection of readings from a particular approach to popular culture: culture and civilization tradition; culturalism; structuralism and post-structuralism; marxism; feminism and postmodernism. These sections chart the theoretical development of the study of popular culture within cultural studies and provide examples of the analysis of the texts and practices of popular culture from within each specific tradition. The final section contains readings from recent debates on the study of popular culture. The Reader offers students the opportunity to experience at first hand the theorists and critics discussed in Cultural Theory and Popular Culture: An Introduction. It can be used both in conjunction with and independently of the textbook. Taken as a whole, the reader provides a theoretical, analytical and historical introduction to the study of popular culture and provides key primary coverage of fundamental issues to cultural studies today.
