This chapter explains the methodology for our investigation into the relationship between popular culture and political engagement. In modifying the methodology of David Buckingham we adopt a ‘bottom-up’ approach which attempts to take account of the personal and subjective nature of political engagement and media use. The research involved three specific phases, including; (1) a survey of young people’s use of popular culture (2) an analysis of the political ideas and values contained within texts and (3) focus groups and interviews designed to generate talk about popular culture by young people.
