Skrócony opis: (tylko po angielsku)

In this course we will explore a variety of topics associated with the contemporary youth and young adult culture in the United States of America, discussing them in a wider context of American society and politics. Looking through the lens of the concepts of age, “race”, gender, class, ethnicity and nationhood, we will consider what it means to be a teenager in America today investigating youth’s political, social and cultural agency, the role of religion in the lives of young people, teenage consumerism, high school and college culture, teen literature and film, food practices among American teenagers, adolescent sex culture and teenage parenthood, as well as historical processes that shaped the American youth culture of today. Reflecting upon, among other questions, American prom as a space of discipline and exclusion, the connection between cars, submarines and dating etiquette, and a longstanding custom of ‘bed courtship’, we will look into the politicized, the gendered, the sexualized, and the racialized in the American youth’s world. Assuming an interdisciplinary approach to the studies of youth, this course aims at offering Participants a broad and critical understanding of the contemporary youth culture in the USA.
