Kitsch: From Education to Public Policy

Synopsis

Kitsch -- or tacky, simplistic art and art forms -- is used by various political actors to shape and limit what we know about ourselves, what we know about our past and our future, as well as what our present-day public policy options might be. Using a plethora of historic and contemporary examples (such as "Forrest Gump" and "Boys Town"), the author maps out how Kitsch is employed in various political and educational sites to shape public opinion and understandings.
