WA 01375 - Writing about Popular Culture
Whether we are ranking the greatest gangster films of all time, arguing for the political importance of hip hop, or sharing memes about the lifestyles of celebrities, the various forms of popular culture serve as important public spaces for making meaning. This course considers the different ways writers respond to these forms as they analyze and situate pop culture through reviews, interviews, rankings, features, and digital media. Students will read from a variety of critics and genres, write and publish in these genres, and consider the ethical questions and rhetorical functions such texts present for pop culture.
