The New Validation of Popular Culture: Sense and Sentimentality in Academia.
Schudson, Michael
Critical Studies in Mass Communication, v4 n1 p51-68 Mar 1987
Critically reviews several intellectual developments that have legitimized the study of popular culture in American universities in recent years, including (1) a sociological perspective that minimizes the differences between high and popular culture, (2) a broadening of what can be studied as a "text", and (3) increasing attention to the audience's role in constructing the works of art.
