Anthropological definition of Culture: The system of shared beliefs, values, customs, behaviours, and artifacts that the members of society use to cope with their world and with one another, and that are transmitted from generation to generation through learning. (Bates & Plog, p. 7). UN definition of Culture: A set of distinctive spiritual, material, intellectual and emotional features of society or a social group and that it encompasses, in addition to art and literature, lifestyles, ways of living together, value systems, traditions and beliefs". (http://www.unesco.org/education/imld_2002/unversal_decla.shtml)] Definition of high culture: High culture is often associated with art forms such as opera, classical music, ballet, literature and fine arts.

Pop Culture

Pop Culture: The opposite of high cultural art forms, such as the opera, historic art, classical music, traditional theater or literature; popular culture includes many forms of cultural communication including newspapers, television, advertising, comics, pop music, radio, cheap novels, movies, jazz, etc. In the beginning of the 20th Century, "high art" was the realm of the wealthy and educated classes while popular culture or "low art" was considered commercial entertainment for the lower classes. In the 1950s and 60s the gulf between high and low art closed with the rise of Pop Artin which artists incorporated imagery and/or media from popular culture such as advertisements, mass produced objects, movies, and comics.
