This section contains books from Trieste Publishing on pop culture.
Popular culture (also called pop culture or mass culture) is usually recognized by members of society as a combination of practices, beliefs and objects that are dominant or prevailing in society at a given time. Popular culture also encompasses actions and feelings arising from interactions with these dominant objects. A strong influence in our time through the media, this collection of ideas pervades the daily life of people in this society. Thus, popular culture has a way to influence a person’s attitude to certain topics. Because of this, popular culture is something that can be defined in various conflicting ways by different people in different contexts. This is usually seen in contrast to other forms of culture, such as popular culture, working-class culture or high culture, as well as through various theoretical perspectives, such as psychoanalysis, structuralism, postmodernism and much more. The most common categories of pop culture are: entertainment (e.g. films, music, television and video games), sports, news (as in news about people / places), politics, fashion, technology and slang.
