Popular Culture


Phenomenological Approaches to Popular Culture
Edited by Michael T. Carroll and Eddie Tafoya

Popular Press

Within popular culture studies, one finds discussions about quantitative sociology, Marxism, psychoanalysis, myth criticism, feminism, and semiotics, but hardly a word on the usefulness of phenomenology, the branch of philosophy concerned with human experience. In spite of this omission, there is a close relationship between the aims of phenomenology and the aims of popular culture studies, for both movements have attempted to redirect academic study toward everyday lived experience.

The fifteen essays in this volume demonstrate the way in which phenomenological approaches can illuminate popular culture studies, and in so they take on the entire range of popular culture.
