Art and entertainment that engage wide audiences are fascinating. They also show how human concerns adapt to different situations. Shakespeare's plays, written for general audiences in his time, offer insight into Elizabethan concerns as well as our own. Exploring movies, television, popular music, the media, genre literature, theatre, circus, vaudeville, burlesque and other popular forms offers insights into the ideas and experiences of many worlds.
