Intersubjectivities and Popular Culture: Bakhtin and Beyond by Esther Peeren

Peeren's book is a cultural analysis that brings the literary and social theories of Mikhail Bakhtin to bear on artifacts and events from contemporary popular culture in order to theorize gender, sexual, and racial identities as fundamentally intersubjective.
