Pop Culture as Pedagogy

Pop Culture as Pedagogy

[Run by the wonderful Carolyn Guertin + starts June 30th] “This graduate course is positioned at the intersection of education, popular culture, and youth experiences. It explores questions concerning the social construction of youth, parents, and teachers; knowledge and power in schools and in media; representations of social identities; and access to particular media and technologies within social spaces. Students use theoretical and research texts to critically analyze popular media, including films, digital media (including games and music), and television shows. Inquiry will explore the complex relationships between identity, performance, representation, consumption, power, knowledge, authority, and culture with the objective of with how schools can incorporate media and popular culture in ways that contribute to student success.”
