It was in 19th century England that the term “popular culture” or “pop culture” was first used. Pop culture referred to the culture of the lower classes, distinguished from the educated classes. In the United States, after World War II, the term took on a new meaning, specifically “culture for mass consumption,” and the abbreviation “pop culture” emerged in the 1960s.
