popculturepicjpegforpublishing-main_full.jpgToday at Gathering Voices I have a new post about the “Elvislessness” about the college students I’m teaching this term. In my course on Religion and Popular Culture, there are plenty of cultural touchstones in terms of film, television, and books that many young adults seem to like. But their musical tastes are all over the map.

What is “the” music of emerging adults? Is the lack of a cultural consensus a sign of the times? And should I be worried that I’ve never even heard of Offspring, Incubus, the Deftones, or Bruno Mars?
