Anth 469: Youth, Culture, Globalization This course examines and explores recent critical approaches to studying global youth and youth cultures from an anthropological perspective. It theoretically examines current global issues through the reading of contemporary youth ethnography: a study of cultural production in the everyday lives of young people in various settings and contexts. The class readings and documentaries mostly focus on the following larger themes: culture and globalization, modernity, popular culture and media, socioeconomic development, civil society and the public sphere, and student politics.
