Examines a variety of representations of working people found in commercial popular culture and mass media since the early 20th century as a means to explore the ways in which history, memory, and politics are shaped through popular discourse. Uses popular music, Hollywood movies, the mainstream press, and television sitcoms to understand the ideological and political influences on our preconceptions of workers and work, and how those forces influence our notions of authenticity, authority, cultural and economic power, the historical experience, and the politics of social class.
