Description - Next Wave Cultures by Anita Harris
Whereas once young women's feminist activism could be easily identified, today this resistance seems obscure, transitory, and disorganized. In "Next Wave Cultures", established and emerging scholars provide an interdisciplinary examination of young women's multilayered lives. This collection demonstrates that young women have new ways of taking on politics and culture that may not be recognizable under more traditional paradigms, but deserve to be identified as socially engaged and potentially transformative nonetheless. Exploring the ways in which girls' various cultural pursuits are tied to identity formation and relate to issues of class, sexuality, ethnicity, religion, ability, and, gender, "Next Wave Cultures" highlights both the limitations and opportunities afforded by globalization of youth consumer culture. This valuable collection is a necessary read across disciplines--especially to those in the fields of education, gender and cultural studies, sociology, and psychology.
