Abstract

The following article defines lists as non-narrative paradigms and discusses their epistemic und poetic functions. First of all, I will distinguish between personal, qualitative, and nominal list-making (which can be classified as belonging to pop culture) and lists in popular culture (anonymous, quantitative, ordinal/metric). Following this distinction, the paper presents different concepts of ›the Popular‹ and ›Pop‹ and argues that lists are – in different ways – forms of defining what is pop or popular (and what is not). The objective is an overview of recent studies in pop and popular culture.
