The aim of this unit is to define and study French popular culture. What are the distinctions between popular culture and elite culture? How is the audience characterised? By studying different media (popular literature, advertising, comic strips, etc.), we will analyse the elements that characterise popular culture and discuss its social, ideological and psychological functions. The theoretical discussions will be based on the studies of Barthes, Eco and Baudrillard.
