Popular Culture


5000 Years of Popular Culture
Popular Culture before Printing
Edited by Fred E.H. Schroeder

This collection of insightful essays by outstanding artists, anthropologists, historians, classicists and humanists was developed to fulfill four purposes.

Its first purpose is to broaden the study of popular culture which is too often regarded in the academic world as the entertainment and leisure time activities of the 20th century. Second, the collection gives recognition to the fact that a number of disciplines have been investigating popular phenomena on different fronts, and it is designed to bring examples of these disciplines together under the common rubric of "popular culture." Related to this is a third purpose of providing instances of original and innovative interdisciplinary approaches. Last, the collection should be a worthwhile contribution to the component disciplines as well as to the study of popular culture.

Fred E.H. Schroeder is director of the Program in Humanities at the University of Minnesota, Duluth. He is a past president of the Midwest Popular Culutre Association, Vice-President of the Popular Culture Association and President of the Upper Midwest American Culture Association. Dr. Schroeder has published many articles on popular culture and other aspects of culture, including Outlaw Aesthetics and Twentieth-Century Popular Culture in Museums and Libraries.
