Sociology of Leisure: Moral panics RLO

Rating: 3 stars
Used in Course: Not used in course
Submitted by: michael miller (Faculty), Jan 21, 2011

A series of slides that address the conceptual suitability of "moral panic" to how popular media has framed youth movements, particularly those construed by elites as threatening.  Suggests that the concept should be revised to incorporate the ability of "deviant" groups to impose their own definitions of reality through online media creation.  Includes hyperlinks to additional readings, including Marxist interpretations, by other scholars.

Technical Remarks:

Text based with several images / easily navigated.
