Dustin Kidd

Dr. Kidd is Associate Professor, Director of Graduate Studies, and Internship Director in the Department of Sociology at Temple University.
 
In this accessibly written introduction to the sociology of popular culture, Dustin Kidd provides the tools to think critically about the cultural soup served daily by film, television, music, print media, and the internet. Utilizing each chapter to present core topical and timely examples, Kidd highlights the tension between inclusion and individuality that lies beneath mass media and commercial culture, using this tension as a point of entry to an otherwise expansive topic. He systematically considers several dimensions of identity--race, class, gender, sexuality, disability--to provide a broad overview of the field that encompasses classical and contemporary theory, original data, topical and timely examples, and a strong pedagogical focus on methods.
 
Love it or hate it, popular culture permeates every aspect of contemporary society.
