1. History, Mythmaking and the Cultural Memory of Youth Subcultures

During the twentieth century, various political, musical and other youth subcultures have emerged worldwide and evolved into globally marketed mainstream phenomena. Subsequently, research on subcultural movements has flourished. However, as spectacular as subcultural histories often are, myth and reality tend to become inextricably linked in retrospectives, both in popular media such as newspapers, photobooks, memoires, as well as in academic research. Even more so, researchers have often contributed to the mythical histories of subcultures, rather than critically engaging with them.

MLA Working Group on "Nonhuman Forms"  Humanistic inquiry of late is obsessed with the nonhuman.
