SOCI 250

Youth in Society

This course is designed to provide a critical comparative framework for interpreting the experiences and perceptions of youth in the United States. We consider the ways that society portrays youth, the effect of corporate culture on youth, the expression of youth identities through experiences like the prom, the internet, fashion, and music. We look at real peoples experiences within these contexts, and see how they operate as spaces for youth to internalize and confront social power relations reflected in age, social class, racial and ethnic, and gendered norms
