The Mass Culture Workshop is a forum dedicated to ongoing research that considers the aesthetic, historical, and political dimensions of mass media, including cinema, digital media, television, popular music, photography, video, advertising, fashion, social media, and other technologies of mass culture. Because the scope of many forms of mass culture extends beyond the boundaries of any one discipline, the Workshop is committed to interdisciplinary work. The workshop meets in Cobb 311 on scheduled Fridays from 11:00am to 12:30pm.
We are committed to making Mass Culture an inclusive and accessible environment for everyone. If there is anything we can do to facilitate your participation, or if you simply have questions, please do not hesitate to email Wolfgang Boehm (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Joel Sutherland (Jfsutherland@uchicago.edu), your 2022-2023 workshop coordinators.
