A cultural reader with a light semiotic approach to pop culture, with an early chapter on semiotics, and one about writing process and research. Chapters include “Reading and Writing About”: television; public and private space; race and ethnicity; movies; images; gender; art; advertising; relationships; music; technology. Most readings are very accessible, though still in need of discussion, analysis. Limited scholarly writing.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0130949841, Paperback)

For courses in Freshman Composition, Sophomore or advanced component, and writing intensive cultural study courses. This cultural studies reader is devoted to teaching students how to "read" all kinds of texts. Its comprehensive and inclusive approach focuses on the relationship between reading traditional works-such as short stories, and poems-and other less-traditional ones-such as movies, the Internet, race, ethnicity, and television. More importantly, the book teaches students the usefulness of learning to actively read their surroundings. Achieving This will help readers become successful as students in academic settings, as well as participants in their world.
