Fixing and Circulating the Popular is a contribution to the fields of
cultural anthropology/folklore studies, cultural studies, and media
studies, exploring processes of appropriation and re-coding of popular
culture in everyday life. The articles in this volume are inspired by
the research approach of cultural analysis of technology
(Kulturwissenschaftliche Technikforschung) and present new ethnographic
case studies on techniques of collecting and distributing popular
culture in the past and present, such as folk heritage collections,
radio, and cultural policies building upon such media. They investigate
love communication and mobile phone videos produced and distributed
with smartphones and the use of geodata platforms.
