9780415680769: British Cultural Identities

In British Cultural Identities, Mike Storry and Peter Childs assess the degree to which being British impinges on the identity of the many people who live in Britain. They analyze contemporary British identity through the various and changing ways in which people who live in the UK position themselves and are positioned by their culture today. Using examples from contemporary and popular culture, each chapter covers one of seven intersecting themes:

    • place and environment
    • education, work and leisure
    • gender, sex and the family
    • youth culture and style
    • class and politics
    • ethnicity and language
    • religion and heritage.

This new edition is fully updated to include Britain's relationship with the wider world, changes in university education and testing in schools, the trend towards electronic entertainment and social networking, the new impact of 'class', and the culture of political leaking.
