Book Description

May 1997 0631197869 978-0631197867
This reader in popular cultural studies is an up-to-date collection of readings on contemporary youth cultures and youth music. From rave to disco and house to northern soul, the material gathered in this volume helps to distinguish "popular cultural studies" from some aspects of the theoretical work of "contemporary cultural studies". In doing so, the ethnographic work associated with contemporary cultural studies traditions of youth and popular culture research is consolidated, extended and applied to contemporary culture in the 1990s. Combining description and theory in a pedagogical framework, the book should be useful for upper-level students following courses on population culture, youth culture and popular music within the disciplines of cultural studies, communication studies, sociology and media studies.

Product Description

Review

"An excellent, wide-ranging and thought-provoking collection. It genuinely breaks new ground, is much more up to date than anything else in the field, and strikes a very good balance between descriptive and theoretical material. The case studies are fascinating and sophisticated." Dr John Jervis, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Kent at Canterbury


"From Punk to the politics of space in the record store, to football, popular music and democratisation, this collection of writings provides a space within which the function of popular culture can be rethought." Sophie Taysom, Social Alternatives --This text refers to the Paperback edition.
