Cultural Objects…

Just playing with this idea in my head to show change over time in culture


The above image represents some ‘cultural objects’ associated with my teenage years ( some time ago now 😉 ) , I could have put a couple of examples but just decided on the first idea that came into my head.  A couple of questions to think about…

a) What are your teenage ‘cultural objects’?

b) How and why are they different?

c) Do they tell us anything about the countries shaping that culture? Why might this be? (I think there is a clear pattern from my choices. 😉 )

It would be nice to have some examples from the 60s, 70s and 80s as well…

    Nice idea Tony – yoink…

    But a teenager in the 1990’s ?
    I’d been teaching for years by then, which makes me feel very old…

    Will post a response to this on the cultural blog later tonight – given me a little project to do… (as if I didn’t have one to do already…) but I know mine will be very different. In fact, one of my finds this week has been a diary of mine from when I was 13 – in 197* – some great cultural changes and maybe will do that:

    “The Secret Diary of Alan Parkinson aged 12 and three quarters…”

    Looking forward to the Cultural stuff from January ish onwards – transport first…
    Will e-mail you some resources I’ve been developing later on as well…

    The best was the first series, it was really different from anything that had gone before… fond memories of all my family sitting down to watch it.
