Summary

The interconnections of gender and popular culture are multiple and varied, and serious scholarly work that examines gender through the lens of popular culture—and vice versa—is of central and growing significance in the academy. This is not only because battles about gender roles, rights, and ideologies are often fought in popular-cultural forms, but also because there is a growing realization that gender inequality stubbornly persists despite the existence of formal legal parity in many jurisdictions.

Now, this timely new four-volume collection from Routledge’s Critical Concepts in Media and Cultural Studies series brings together a well-considered balance of foundational and cutting-edge scholarship. With a focus on examples drawn from digital culture, fashion, music, mass and new media—and an intersectional approach to gender—Gender and Popular Culture provides a comprehensive and exciting ‘one-stop’ compendium. With a full index and introductions newly written by the editors, it is an indispensable reference resource for researchers and students.
