Consumption of popular culture can be a conscious decision. Awareness of your reasons for consuming particular popular culture texts can give you insight into the formation of your identity and worldview.
Watch the advertisement below for the Disney Princesses entitled “Dream Big, Princess – Be A Champion” AND/OR read the following article, “Fairy Tale Dreams (Links to an external site.), Disney Princess’ Effects on Young Girls Self-Images” and blog post response, Disney Princesses, Girl Identity & Imaginative Play (Links to an external site.)
Then discuss how you believe the consumption of the advertisemet can create and reinforce worldviews and stereotypes about female beauty and ability.
Finally, comment on other popular culture texts (websites, TV shows, movies, music etc) reinforce worldviews and stereotypes about other components of cultural identity.
