Education research and youth subculture theory
Tait, Gordon (1992) Education research and youth subculture theory. In Proceedings of AARE 1992 International Education Conference, AARE, Deakin University, South Australia.
Recent theoretical developments (particularly those involving the work of Michel Foucault) have challenged the foundations upon which subcultural analysis is built. It is not the intention of this paper to take issue with the underpinning neo-Marxist assumptions concerning hegemony, consciousness and culture. Rather, the intention is simply to problematise the use of subculture theory in terms of its totalising, normalising and dichotomising nature.
