The Week 6 Forum meets the following course objectives:

· Describe examples of the different types of norms operative in popular culture, and how these are related to the process of social control.

· Apply key cultural theories and analytical dimensions for examining popular culture.

· Explain how various elements of popular culture inform or reflect our attitudes, behavior, and society and why the popular culture becomes popular.

· Illustrate diversity in popular culture and concepts of multiculturalism, ethnocentrism, and cultural relativism with reference to key stratifying factors such as gender, race, ethnicity, class, age, region and sexuality.
