Today, I took my Youth Culture class to the Bazaar (basically a huge Mexican flea-market) here in Lomas Verdes.
We are studying sub-cultures, and it is amazing how many different sub-cultures you can find in a place like the bazaar. One of the manifestations of a culture is product. Each culture produces things for that culture. We saw stores selling stuff for Ravers, Goths, Hippies, Sports enthusiasts, Weight-lifters, and others.
The class is doing group research projects on subcultures and will be presenting them in class next Wednesday. Their subcultures of choice…Goths, Ravers, and Rappers. Should be fun. I can’t wait.
