Abstract

What is popular culture? Is it the latest vampire movie, the newest fashion trends, or the writing of Ukrainian Easter eggs? Or is it a European football game, Nubian face painting, or Mexican tamales? The meaning of popular culture, its roles and power structures, and its ideological and moral constructs has generated considerable debate within and outside academia.
