Product description

Cultural Studies, Education, and Youth: Beyond Schools, edited by Benjamin Frymer, Matthew Carlin, and John Broughton, addresses the new cultural landscapes which increasingly "educate" our youth. With essays from both emerging and established scholars, the book explores the ways media and popular culture have a growing impact on our youth, their identities, and everyday lives. In our highly mediated world, the nature of education has been dramatically transformed and taken way beyond the walls of our schools. Identities are formed, values learned, and relationships developed in the worlds of pop culture and media spaces. Each author brings a different lens to the study of education beyond the classroom. From the re-emergence of Che Guevara to the effects of an increasingly virtual culture, this collection critically attends to the changing nature of education and the impact of culture in the lives of youth. Cultural Studies, Education, and Youth: Beyond Schools raises significant questions and offers important insights for teachers, youth, scholars, and practitioners, alike.

Review quote

This important work asks crucial questions on the professional territorialization of education, and more importantly, what to do about it. The book's contributors provide a lively and timely group of questions on the current state of education, where creativity is stifled in the name of practicality and institutionalized standardization is the norm. This book is a much needed reminder that the purpose of education itself is lost unless critical analysis and a cultural studies perspective help move education away from institutions, and back to an approach to humanities and social sciences that serve to foster independent thinking and crucial analysis in students. -- Brian Cogan, associate professor of communication arts at Molloy College and co-editor of Mosh the Polls: Youth Voters, Popular Culture an There are anthologies and there are intellectual interventions. The intervention by Frymer, Broughton, Carlin, and their international and interdisciplinary collaborators affirms the rightful place of cultural studies in the study of schooling. Scholars and students from all disciplines who read this book will experience an education worth the name. -- Zeus Leonardo, Editor of Critical Pedagogy and Race, California State University, Long Beach
