Writing about popular culture can be a welcome relief from essays on historical events or literature for many students. However, if students choose too broad of a topic, they might struggle with the assignment, finding it difficult to prove their point or stay within the bounds of a page limit or word count. So it's important that students consider different topics in popular culture before sitting down to write.Impact of a Popular Culture Figure
A popular culture paper can analyze the impact of a past or current figure in pop culture. Students can choose pop culture figures who intrigue them, which will make the project an engaging one to write. For example, a student might choose to write about how his favorite band, the Rolling Stones, has transcended time over several decades. Or he can select an actor or a moment in popular culture and explain how that person or event affected society.Compare and Contrast
Popular culture evolves over time, and students can analyze the changes in popular culture in a compare-and-contrast paper. A compare-and-contrast pop culture paper can take many angles. For example, a student can write about how a particular element of pop culture, such as purchasing artists' music, has changed over time or popular television shows from a previous decade compared with current popular television shows.Changes in Advertising
Advertising is a part of popular culture, and it is always changing, reflecting the times. Assessing changes in the advertising industry or different advertorial strategies that companies use to sell products to consumers is a possible paper topic. Students can narrow this broad topic down by talking about advertising in a specific industry. For example, they can assess how toy advertisers market to children and what strategies they use to effectively sell their products now and in the past.Globalization of Pop Culture
A paper on popular culture can analyze the globalization of pop culture. Students can look at the impact of pop culture in different countries and assess whether some elements of pop culture are pervasive from continent to continent. They can also look at how American elements of pop culture have spread across the world and determine whether other countries respond to pop culture in the same way Americans do.
Fraustino, Lisa Rowe – Children's Literature in Education, 2015

Culture, in the broadest of terms, refers to the meanings, values and ways of life of particular groups, nations and classes. Popular culture is generally seen as a set of 'signifying practices' that produce meaning. The term 'popular culture' invokes a notion of a common culture in both material and non-material ways. In order to understand how people think, feel, value, act and express themselves, it is necessary to examine the cultures they create, and are in turn created by” (Inglis, 2005). Yet, it is possible to do so in part only because the cultural sphere has emerged as a historically distinct realm of activities that is differentiated from the social, economic and political spheres, and is oriented toward making meaning (Lury, 1992). Nonetheless, by exploring the meanings associated with popular culture practices, we get to understand how culture, society, and individuals interact. There are different ways of looking at popular culture: as objects and goods produced and distributed on a mass scale; as ideology; as expressions of class, gender, and ethnicity.
Keywords Agency; Culture; Folklore; Identity; Ideology; Social Cohesion; Subjectivity; TotemismPopular Culture Overview
During the late twentieth century, very few universities offered courses on popular culture. Since that time, the study of popular culture has expanded, even though its definition remains broad. Culture, in the broadest of terms, refers to the meanings, values and ways of life of particular groups, nations and classes. Raymond Williams, in Keywords, defines culture in three ways:
• As "a general process of intellectual, spiritual and aesthetic development"
• As proposing "a particular way of life, whether of a people, a period or a group"
• As referring to "the works and practices of intellectual and especially artistic activity" (Williams, 1983).
Popular culture is generally associated with the second definition, as a set of 'signifying practices' that produce meaning. “In order to understand how people think, feel, value, act and express themselves, it is necessary to examine the cultures they create, and are in turn created by” (Inglis, 2005). Yet, it is possible to do so in part only because the cultural sphere has emerged as a historically distinct realm of activities that is differentiated from the social, economic and political spheres (Lury, 1992), and that is oriented toward making meaning. Nonetheless, as the inaugural editorial of the Journal of Popular Culture notes, by exploring the meanings associated with popular culture practices, we get to understand how culture, society and individuals interact (Hoppenstand, 2003, p. 151).
The term 'popular culture' invokes a notion of a common culture in both material and non-material ways. The Journal of Popular Culture notes that popular culture "can, and should, be anything: television, automobiles, movies, fast food, tattoos, best-selling novels, buildings, music, holidays-the list is potentially endless" (Hoppenstand, 2003, 3). Nonetheless, there are different ways of looking at popular culture:
• As objects and goods produced and distributed on a mass scale;
• As expressions of class, gender and ethnicity.What is Popular About Culture?
On the one hand, culture is popular in this sense because it springs from 'the people', whether we are talking about vernacular language, locally produced, hand-made goods (such as quilts) or civic culture, such as flags, jokes, and anthems (Kidd, 2007). On the other hand, culture is viewed as popular because it invokes a sense of widespread pleasure that is shared by a majority, and distributed via non-human technologies such as print, broadcast, and electronic media.
Popular culture is generally found in advanced capitalist societies characterized by commodification (Kidd, 2007). While popular culture has its roots in folklore, it took on more distinct forms as industrial societies became increasingly urban (Storey, 1989). Forms of popular culture are invariably explained as vehicles of dominant ideology; as a means of cohesion; and as a mechanism of resistance to dominant norms.
Popular culture is commonly viewed as a distinct set of practices set apart from economic, political or social practices; that which is differentiated from art, or high culture. Some, according to Giddens (1997), see popular culture as
… entertainment created for large audiences, such as popular films, shows, music, videos and TV programs. Popular culture is often contrasted to 'high' or 'elite' culture, which refers to the tastes of educated minorities. Classical music, opera and painting are examples of high culture (Giddens, 1997, p. 584).Popular Culture as Commercial Culture
In pre-modern societies, culture was well integrated with and inseparable from everyday life. For instance, anthropologists have observed how, in traditional societies, totemism, which denotes the symbolic association of plants, animals or objects with people, divides the natural world into groups or categories in ways that reflect and construct social differences (e.g. Levi-Strauss, 1969). Therefore, objects come to stand for or represent social groups that in turn are recognized by its use of the object and its members shared appreciation for what the object stands for.
In modern societies, the way that objects are produced and communicated has changed how people view them and how they are used. For instance, print and visual technology made it possible to produce objects (books, films, game shows) and distribute them to people who are not connected to the way they were produced. Kidd (2007) states, "the negative effects of popular culture were very clear to [sociologist and Frankfurt School scholar] Walter Benjamin, who argued that mechanical reproduction of art" (prints, books, photographs) removes the 'aura' from that work. That is, "the work need no longer be experienced within the particular context of its creation and exhibition" (Kidd, 2007, p. 74).
Culture became commercialized. One consequence of this process has been that in contrast to people in traditional societies, people in modern societies are separated from the cultural means of production and from those who produce cultural objects. For instance, as Kidd (2007) describes:
Most musical experiences happen at home or in the car, mediated through radio or stereo, rather than in the presence of performers. The song is a commodity that can be purchased as a tape or CD, or downloaded over the Internet. Even the "live" experience of music, where the song is heard in the presence of its performers, is a sort of commodity since the performances are largely the same. In fact, performance itself is largely mass-produced and so in this way, there is no original, special moment in the production of music in which, Benjamin might say, an aura can be perceived” (p. 74).
In this way, power differentials may develop between producers and consumers of popular culture and cultural objects are transformed from objects of art (high culture) into commodities. For some commentators, this phenomenon is highly problematic.
Theorists of the Frankfurt School, especially Jürgen Habermas, argued that the standardized, commercialized products associated with the 'culture industry' have undermined the capacity of people to think independently and critically and they distract people from organizing against the established order. Other theorists, such as Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer, examined how commercialized culture is produced and how the interests of producers are reflected in the content of popular culture. For instance, contemporary media ownership is illustrative of this analysis. Newspapers are owned by a small number of large corporations that set editorial policies. Thus the news and information newspapers provide is often limited in scope and detached from the concerns of everyday life.
Moreover, the technology of popular culture that allows mass reproduction, especially with television, has turned people into passive consumers. According to Horkheimer and Adorno's work in Dialectic of Enlightenment (1992), “the production and distribution of culture through mechanical processes constitutes a ‘culture industry’ in which culture is reduced from art to business” (Kidd, 2007, p. 72).Popular Culture versus High Art
However, in his classic text Art Worlds, Howard Becker (1984) criticizes this view of popular culture as something that stands in contrast to high culture, or to art. It's true, as Inglis and Hughson (2005) point out, that many people have written about art as a form of high culture. For instance the poet Matthew Arnold defined high culture as 'sweetness and light', as something that offers beauty and intellectual insight. In this view, the things that are seen as high culture are assumed to display the best quality of a given form-e.g.the symphony is more complex and sophisticated than the pop song (Inglis, 2005, p. 78)-and has.

American Culture Essay Research Paper
On American Culture
To a typical foreign anthropologist American culture could be seen very competitive and individualistic. While other countries only play 1 or 2 sports throughout their nation North America is involved in a vast variety of competitive sports. From Basketball to Golf and Tennis to our treasured past time favorites such as Baseball and Football. To better explain and demonstrate culture to you the researcher I will be taking you to the home of the New York Giants. There?s no place better to show off some typical American culture than at the Meadow Lands.
Upon arriving at the stadium we see an array of dedicated Giant fans waving flags singing songs and even having barbeques in the trailers parking lot. If it?s not hotdogs or crab legs up to everyone?s mouth then it?s beer. Every game gets sold out due to the devotion that their fans have. Football is one of the greatest past times and has an enormous history and impact to its fans. Once entering all that?s seen circling the stadium is a mirage of red and blue. Looking down at the field there?s the enormous pep band and forever supportive cheerleaders. Taking a look around the bleachers there?s endless vendors selling hotdogs crackerjacks peanuts and you can never forget the New
Yorker?s favorite ice-cold beer. As the team runs out onto the high maintenance field it?s almost impossible to hear anything but the roar of the crowd. From the corner of our eyes we see the wave starting to form. As it approaches our corner of the field we happily play along and stand up thrusting our hands in the air. Even if you?re not in support of either of the teams playing you can?t help but enjoy yourself in this uplifted environment. The tradition of competitive sports and support of the teams is long and running. One can make his/her way through college by competition. These values are understood even as a child. I could remember my first New York Yankee game at the age of 4. The sport made such an impact on me that it has made me a devoted fan for the past 15 years of my life. Sports have been in full throttle for over 50 years and have built a solid foundation on American culture.
Initiation into American Culture: The Hollywood Smoke Screen As a foreigner looking inward through a glass window, the foundation of the American culture appears to be based on the idealism of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Each year thousands migrate into the United States in search of freedom, democracy and the distinguished American Dream.
Vietmanes Culture/American Culture Essay, Research Paper Vietnamese Culture/ American Culture Being a Vietnamese-American is very tough on me, because I have to deal with two different cultures and traditions. My parents were brought up in a different culture therefore it is hard for them to adapt to a new one.
Great Depression/Culture Essay, Research Paper Question: What did the New Deal change in American society? What in our society did it not change? How much credit should World War II be given for ending the Depression? Has the New Deal impact on present day culture and social values, as well as on economic philosophy and actual distribution of wealth been limited or extensive?
