About this blog
The idea for Pop Cultural Studies comes from people I have talked to in my studies of literature – some people maintain the notion that there is a contrast of high culture and low culture. Some professors I have encountered scoff at the idea that television, film, video games, comics, etc. are nothing more than mindless entertainment. I disagree; and think that these things deserve a closer look. Pop Cultural Studies strives to take an elevated, more analytical look at popular culture.If you notice, I try my best to not just write the things that you’re likely to find on other blogs – reviews, top tens, and other “List-icles” (but I’m not above speculation). Instead, I aim to go deeper.

My name is Andrew. I’m currently studying English at the University of Connecticut. As stated above, I started this blog in order to take a look at popular culture in such a way that one might analyze fine works of literature. Also, my mother says I’m quite the catch.
