However, if we see popular culture in the light of post-modernity we might get a different outlook
on the subject. One of the major claims of post-modernity is of course the diminished role of
organised religion in the daily lives of people. The role of popular culture serving a function of identity-creation
could thus be seen as a consequence of post-modernity. An increased focus on the positive sides of
popular culture could help us understand why it is so widely consumed. This is a discussion that of
course warrants more research that focuses on aspects like identity-creation in connection with
popular culture.
