Course Description: This course explores how children and young people construct and reconstruct their sense of selves against the backdrop of pervasive contemporary popular cultures. It examines contrasting approaches to identity (e.g. developmental, sociological, feminist, post-structuralist) and contemporary debates about the place of popular culture and the media, and entertainment industries in children and young people's lives. The course analyses how children and young people appropriate and colonise symbols, meanings, images, and styles from different popular cultural media. Topics include the uses of cultural commodities in children and young people's construction of gendered, classed, and racialized identities; childhoods, global capital, and multinational companies; the role of the Internet; children and young people as cultural consumers and as cultural producers.
