Definition of Dominant culture (mainstream culture)

By: John (Jack) Junker

Dominant culture (mainstream culture) is the culture that is held within a large amount of people residing in a society, or in other words it is the culture that seems the most “normal” to those that live in a specific area of the world. Mainstream Culture can also be broken down easily to figure out what it’s definition is. Mainstream is the dominant or principle trend/tendency/course, and Culture is the caliber in a single being or an extended group that comes from a concern for what is seen as tolerable in the letters, scholarly pursuits, arts, manners, etc. So when you put them together it basically means the “Dominant Act’s of and within a society”.
