Yellow Vest Protests, social protest, Civil-Sphere’s EMM-Framing Theory
This paper examines the use of popular culture in the 2018-2019 Yellow Vest Protests in France. Using the Civil-Sphere’s EMM-Framing Theory, this paper examines how culture affects protests. It looks at how emotions, morals, and memories are tapped when popular culture is used, especially in music, artwork, memes, slogans, literature, and celebrity thought leaders. It analyzes the success of the protests in light of the use of popular culture and theorizes on the role popular culture might play in the future.
