Synopsis

This book examines the powerful role of popular culture in the daily online literacy practices of young people. Whether as subject matter, discourse, or through rhetorical patterns, popular culture dominates both the form and the content of online reading and writing. In order to understand not only how but why online technologies have changed literacy and popular culture practices, this book looks at online participatory popular culture from MySpace and Facebook pages to fan forums to fan fiction. Interviews and observations reveal the skills and practices students develop, as they sit multitasking at their computers, across popular culture genres and electronic media. For educators, the book provides significant insights into popular culture literacy practices, thus illuminating how students are making meaning and performing identity every day as they read and write online.

The Author: Bronwyn T. Williams is Professor of English at the University of Louisville. He writes and teaches on issues of literacy, popular culture, and identity. His books include Popular Culture and Representations of Literacy with Amy A. Zenger, Identity Papers: Literacy and Power in Higher Education, and Tuned In: Television and the Teaching of Writing.
