Description - Popular Culture and Everyday Life by Trish Miller

This text offers a broad-ranging survey of social and cultural theory while issuing a challenge to contemporary cultural studies' emphasis on speculation, rather than observation. The authors invite readers to question their participation in both dominant and sub-cultural practices by providing perspectives on the everyday through ethnography, textual reading, discourse analysis and political economy. Following a summary of key ideas on everyday practice, such as "eating" or "talking", each chapter considers the discourses that construct these practices, and concludes with one or more empirical investigation. By acknowledging the historical specificity and mundane character of popular culture and everyday life, and by looking at everyday practices in their own right, rather than as merely representations of something else, the authors seek to open up the possibility of a significant departure in cultural studies.
