Researching Popular Culture and Mass Media

Definition - "Popular culture is the accumulated store of cultural products such as music, literature, art, fashion, dance, film, television, and radio that are consumed primarily by non-elite groups such as the working and lower classes (as well as substantial segments of the middle class)."

     From The Blackwell Dictionary of Sociology.
