Now for Word of the Week

Welcome to Word of the Week!

So what is Word of the Week, anyway? Well, every week we pick a cultural studies word to define and discuss! That simple!

In cultural studies, there are certain words/terms/phrases that get used a lot and can be pretty confusing to understand, especially for people outside of Cultural Studies. Pop Culture Pug aims to define these words with easy to understand definitions and discussions. Please feel free to add your thoughts :).

This week’s word is……(drumroll)…..:

Cultural Myth: In simple terms, cultural myths are the big ideas and foundational beliefs that help determine how we understand, or think about the world. They tend to be thought of as natural or “common sense” ideas.

For example, it is a cultural myth that boys should wear blue and girls should wear pink.

Can you think of any other Cultural Myths? Respond to Pop Culture Pug on Twitter @popculturepug, or join the discussion on Facebook!
