This short course delves into the intriguing world of youth subcultures, from Mods and Rockers to Punks, Rastafarians and New Puritans, examining why young people form these groups and what they mean to those who belong to them. Through a series of engaging case studies, the course explores the changing character of youth culture, including the emergence of the concept of the 'teenager' and the rise of consumerism directed at young people. The course also examines the impact of youth culture on Hollywood and how different depictions of youth on screen have reflected changing attitudes towards young people. Furthermore, the course looks at various theories that explain the appearance of youth subcultures, while highlighting the ways in which factors such as race, age, class and gender have all shaped the experience of youth. With a series of lively lectures and interactive seminars, this course aims to introduce students to key definitions and theories surrounding youth culture.
