Welcome to Youth Culture and Media!

This is our class blog. Throughout the unit we will use this platform to explore Youth Culture and Media.  Our posts will investigate the kinds of media platforms and practices that make youth culture move, examining how cultural forms travel, catch on, and spread from city to city, from nation to nation. We are interested in how media practices are shaped by youth culture. And, how youth culture is shaped by media.

What makes a youth practice or style become a mass media or viral sensation? How do young people engage media in their homes, communities, schools, universities and workplaces? What makes youth-led and youth-majority media unique? How does it sound? Look? Feel? How does it move across city streets and rural countrysides? From facebook pages to twitter feeds?
