Rethinking Popular Culture and Media begins from the premise that the popular is political. Whether it s Disney and Barbie, or Snapchat and Vine, youth navigate, shape, and repurpose popular culture. This updated collection of teaching articles and critical commentary is written by and for educators. The authors consider the role in students lives of films, music, and books, as well as popular culture artifacts like toys, and how these materials teach children. In each article, authors critique and rethink the connections among race, class, gender, sexuality, power, and schooling. The second edition includes revised articles, nine new articles, and an updated list of resources.

Part 1: Commercialism, Corporations, and Youth
Part 2: Politics, Violence, and Sanitized History
Part 3: Texts, Toys, and Representation
Part 4: Teaching, Talking Back, and Taking Action
