9781403961648: Youth Fantasies: The Perverse Landscape of the Media

Youth Fantasies is a collection of studies conducted in cross-cultural collaboration over the past ten years that theorizes 'youth fantasy'; as manifested through the media of TV, film, and computer games. Unlike other media studies and education books, the authors employ both Lacanian and Kleinian psychoanalytic concepts to attempt to make sense of teen culture and the influence of mass media. The collection includes case studies of X-Files fans, the influence of computer games and the 'Lara Croft' phenomenon, and the reception of Western television by Tanzanian youth. The authors see this book as a much needed reconciliation between cultural studies and Lacanian psychoanalysis, and attempt to highlight why Lacan is important to note when exploring youth fantasy and interest in the media, especially in shows like X-Files .

Book Description Palgrave Macmillan. Hardcover. Book Condition: New. Hardcover. 304 pages. Dimensions: 9.3in. x 5.9in. x 1.0in.In Youth Fantasies, jan jagodzinski explores the meaning of youth in postmodern industrialized countries. His approach is decidedly psychoanalytic, drawing inspiration from a Lacanian paradigm as developed by the spirited writing of Slavoj Zizek. Youth Fantasies maintains that the symptoms of todays postmodern youth expose the truth of the Romantic modernist fantasy of the innocent or divine child that continues to residually structure beliefs concerning the institution of education and the nuclear family. jagodzinski develops this argument through three sections that deal with the problematic relationship between fantasy and reality, post-Oedipalization, and the cyber-subject. Incorporating a post-Lacanian psychoanalysis, jagodzinski asks us all to rethink the boundaries of reality and fantasy, youth and innocence, family and society.
