Fatima Bhutto: lecture for secondary students

New Global Pop

Korean K-pop group BTS is all the rage, Turkish soap operas, or dizi, triumph on TV, and Bollywood movies move masses—what is going on in new global pop?

Beyond the Western bubble, expressions of popular culture are gaining ground as they inspire and thrill millions of people and give rise to trends that cross borders. These movements often take features drawn from tradition, combining them with the secular, urban way of doing things common with younger generations, paving the way for alternative modernities that go along with the emergence of the new global order. Pakistan-born writer Fatima Bhutto draws us into domains that are slowly but surely finding their way onto our screens and into social media, displacing the centralism of popular culture of a strictly Western origin.
