This chapter discusses an interview with Ellen Seiter about her research on soap opera in Great Britain. It provides background information on Seiter's family, education, and career highlights. In the interview, Seiter points out a feature in the history of the study of popular culture which seems easily forgotten in the current wave of attacks on cultural populism, which is the significance of the non-U.S.-originated defences of American popular culture. This chapter explains Seiter's thoughts on feminism and soap as reflected in her works.

Keywords:   Ellen Seiter, soap opera, Great Britain, feminism, interview, popular culture, U.S.
