Book Description

College students are taught how to write and read critically about popular culture through the use of a conceptual framework that is provided in the eighth edition of Signs of Life in the USA: Readings on Popular Culture for Writers (PDF). This framework is as follows: A branch of critical theory developed expressly for the purpose of interpreting culture and the signs that comprise it is called semiotics. The text book’s high-interest themes incorporate challenging and current reading selections that encourage college students to think analytically about America’s amazing popular culture, and it was written by a notable semiotician as well as an experienced writing instructor. Has the concept of personal identity shifted at all in this day and age, when the majority of our lives are spent online? How does the television show Mad Men act as a lightning rod for the heated political climate in the United States? The eighth edition of Signs of Life in the United States of America helps students make the transition from high school to college writing by providing them with the academic terminology necessary to communicate about our everyday cultural experiences. Read the introduction first.
