Popular Culture in the United States:
A Gramscian Perspective

a talk by Joseph Buttigieg

Monday, December 11 at 8 pm


Gramsci's theory of the "national-popular" has interesting
implications for the development of a distinctively socialist
popular culture. This talk will focus on the ways in which
Gramsci's ideas on folklore, common sense and good sense, and the
relation between class and ideology can sharpen our understanding
of popular culture in the United States.

Author and Gramsci scholar Joseph A. Buttigieg is Professor of
English and Fellow of the Center for European Studies at the
University of Notre Dame.

Admission is $6.
