FYS 123 Elvis Everywhere

Elvis may have left the building, but he has not left popular culture. In some form or another, Elvis transcends topics ranging from art and film to Elvis as a religious icon. This tutorial examines how Elvis discourses function within popular culture (investigating topics such as race, art, and religion) and examines how these and other aspects of Elvis culture relate to the broader context of American popular culture.
