Intersectional Analysis as a Method to Analyze Popular Culture: Clarity in the Matrix explores how race, class, gender, sexuality, and other social categories are represented in, and constructed by, some of the most significant popular culture artifacts in contemporary Western culture.

Through readings of racialized television sitcoms, LGBTQ+ representation in mainstream American music, the role of Black Panther in Western imperialist projects, and self-love narratives promoted by social media influencers, it demonstrates how novice and emerging researchers can use intersectional theory as an analysis method in the field of cultural studies. The case studies presented are contextualized through a brief history of intersectional theory, a methodological rationale for its use in relation to popular culture, and a review of the ethical considerations researchers should take before, during, and after they approach popular artifacts.

Intended to be a textbook for novice and emerging researchers across a wide range of social science disciplines, this book serves as a practical guide to uncover the multiple and interlocking ways oppression is reified, resisted and/or negotiated through popular culture.

MEDIA REVIEWS

If the great Stuart Hall taught us anything, he taught us that theory has to matter. Intersectional Analysis as a Method to Analyze Popular Culture shows us how theory matters in popular culture when intersectionality and justice is at the center of the work. This book dares us to look at ourselves as cultural beings consuming popular culture in the matrix. This book is required reading for individuals and classes seeking to make sense of popular culture and all its complexities by way of intersectional analysis. It pushes us to question how we work to maintain, resist, and negotiate text, and thus, power.
