Subcultures Today and Tomorrow Webinar

Course description

Description

Join us for this live webinar on Subcultures Today and Tomorrow, with Kevin Quinn and Dr Ray Kinsella.

This session will look at the residual power and value of British subcultures almost 80 years after their inception.

We will investigate how subcultures exist, survive and thrive in online spaces and how are ‘alternative’ identities performed, represented, ‘lived’ and relived. We will also consider how cyber-capitalism both potentially absorbs and recuperates any subversive potency and churns out stylistic simulacra yet also enables the transmission of subcultural tropes globally.

We will compare and contrast fandom (on and offline) and discuss the gendered nature of fandom and explore why masculine subcultural practitioners are deemed ‘authentic’ whereas female are dismissed as ‘inauthentic’.

This webinar is aimed at anyone with an interest in the history of British youth subcultures, and what their role and state is in the present day.
