About this product
- DescriptionTheories help to troubleshoot gaps in our understanding, and to make sense of a world that is constantly changing. What this book tries to do, in part, is blur the lines between the differences between today's college students - the millennial generation - and their professors, many of whom hail from the Boom Generation and Generation X. In the following chapters, contributors build upon what both parties already kw. Writing in a highly accessible yet compelling style, contributors explain communication theories by applying them to artifacts of popular culture. These artifacts include Lady Gaga, Pixar films, The Hunger Games, hip hop, Breaking Bad, and zombies, among others. Using this book, students will become familiar with key theories in communication while developing creative and critical thinking. By experiencing familiar popular culture artifacts through the lens of critical and interpretive theories, a new generation of communication professionals and scholars will hone their skills of observation and interpretation - pointing t just toward better communication production, but better social understanding. Professors will especially enjoy the opportunities for discussion this book provides, both through the essays and the dialogue boxes where college students provide responses to authors' ideas.
