For this project we are going to take a look at Popular Culture and what it says about us as a society.
Imagine you are someone who doesn’t know anything about our society and culture.
All you have as a reference point is our methods of entertainment.
What would you think about us as a race of people?


Popular Culture is defined as cultural activities or commercial products reflecting, suited to, or aimed at the tastes of the general masses of people.
