Feminism and Youth Culture

Routledge, 2000 - 225 páginas
"Feminism and Youth Culture has long been regarded as a classic text in the field of British cultural studies. This new edition brings together six essays from the original edition - five of which were written while the author was working at the Birmingham Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies under the directorship of Stuart Hall - with two co-authored pieces, one with Simon Frith and the other with Sarah Thornton. It also includes a brand new introduction that looks back to the years in which much of the work behind this book was undertaken, and new concluding chapter that considers the significant changes which have taken place since the late 1970s that have had an impact on young women today." "Taken together, the essays range over a wide spectrum of important topics for students of cultural and media studies, sociology and gender studies alike from teenage sexuality, young mothers and girls' magazines, to the role of feminism and the politics of feminist research. It provides insight into what are by now recognised as key concerns of the 'Birmingham school' - social class, ideology, popular culture, subcultures and political change - relating these to the complex and challenging question of gender throughout."--BOOK JACKET.
