Introducing myself

poison ivy

Yes, this picture is me.  Dressed as Poison Ivy.  From this, it is safe to assume that I am no stranger to pop culture.  A book nerd married to a Star Wars geek, I feel I have a good understanding of some of the ways that popular culture can influence society.

So when I found out one of the subjects I would be studying as a part of my Master’s Degree on my way to becoming a teacher-librarian was Youth, Popular Culture and Texts, I was excited!

I’ve been learning more about pop culture and participatory culture, texts and how they influence and are influenced by the youth of today.

The aim of this blog is to share with you the insights I have learned as I explore this subject.  Stay tuned!
