Popular culture surrounds us: It is the products we consume, the movies we watch, the music we listen to, and the books we read. It is on our televisions, our phones, and our computers. Popular Culture in the Twenty-First Century engages with these texts and offers a diverse selection of contemporary scholarship from a wide variety of perspectives. These essays, adapted from presentations at the first annual Ray Browne Conference on Popular Culture held at Bowling Green State University in 2012, participate in an ongoing dialogue about popular culture's importance in both the academy and our everyday lives. This collection honors the diversity, depth, and breadth of popular culture studies by examining contemporary television, film, video games, internet fandom, cultures and subcultures, and gender, sexuality, and identity politics. Popular Culture in the Twenty-First Century reflects the necessity of exploring our common experiences and the many cultural modes that shape our everyday lives.
