Description of Lecture

From Assassin's creed to American Sniper, from Marvel to Miley Cyrus, pop culture is political. Media representation subtly shape our ideas about the world and inform the ways the we address terrorism, poverty, and other global issues. Sometimes the stories we tell about the world keep us from thinking critically about solutions. This lecture will explore the discursive and ideological relationship between pop culture and global policy, and will discuss ways scholars can engage this intersection to promote critical thinking and social justice in public discourse.
