EDU5704 Popular Culture as Curriculum and Pedagogy

Units : 1
Faculty or Section : Faculty of Education
School or Department : Education


Students in this course will work through a number of cultural tropes presented in popular cultural forms including the media, music, art and literature in order to develop a 'pedagogy of the popular'. Working from a theoretical foundation grounded in the traditions of Critical Pedagogy and Cultural Studies specifically, a range of prominent popular cultural forms will be explored in order to identify the nature of informal pedagogical practices, 'public pedagogies' and the possibilities of formal, school based pedagogies to transform the 'popular' as a site of emancipatory and participatory social practice.
