Cultural Production and Participatory Politics : Youth, Symbolic Creativity, and Activism

Cultural Production and Participatory Politics : Youth, Symbolic Creativity, and Activism

Description

This book addresses the conceptual lapse in the literature regarding the relationship between cultural production and participatory politics by examining their connections in a range of national and political contexts.

Each chapter examines how youth engage cultural production as part of their political participation, and how political participation is sometimes central to, and expressed through, cultural production. The contributing authors provide examples of the intersections between youth cultural production and participatory politics and bring together a range of approaches to the examination of these intersections, providing illustrations of the complexities involved in these processes. Each of the chapters takes up different kinds of practices - from street art to video production, from online activism to installation work. They also examine a range of political contexts - from students striking at the University of Puerto Rico to activism in community arts centres and university classrooms. The book considers what becomes evident when close attention is paid to the intersection of cultural production and participatory politics: what does participatory politics help people to see about cultural production and how does cultural production expand how people understand participatory politics?

This book was originally published as a special issue of Curriculum Inquiry.
