As popular culture establishes itself as a new collective mythos, it also continues to gain validity as a field of study. Popular culture often inserts itself into the classroom, generating conversations, serving as ways for students and teachers to connect and convey concepts, and fueling areas of media literacy and the “new literacies” by providing common material for students and teachers to analyze, critique, and create.

This issue of AEQ seeks both theoretical and practical insights into the ways in which popular culture works in a variety of educational settings. Pieces may deal with what popular culture is and the ways in which it addresses topics of curricular interest, current attention to technological advances, and globalization. In addition, submissions might address the question of the “appropriate” use of popular culture in the classroom or any of the following:
  • How is popular culture shaping education and schooling?
  • How might one integrate aspects of popular culture into the classroom and transcend from the “gimmicky” to the meaningful?
  • How can teachers avoid co-opting students’ interests, and what happens when something is no longer “popular”?
  • How can a better understanding of popular culture, in particular those of youth, lead to improved pedagogical practices?
Who should submit?
Those who are interested in the implications of popular culture on education and schooling are encouraged to submit. Papers should primarily deal with the topic of popular culture, although those which also deal with media literacy and the “new literacies” are welcome as well. Papers may take the form of theoretical explorations of the topic, research studies conducted or in process, practical applications for education or any combination of approaches. Please identify your submission with the keyword: CULTURE-2
