What does it mean to grow up? In this section, we will focus on portrayals of burgeoning and young adulthood in literature, film, and journalism. Why has the coming-of-age theme had such longevity, in genres ranging from the Bildungsroman of the 1800s to the memoir and today’s popular teen angst-ridden TV shows? How do perceptions and experiences of adolescence differ across cultures, genders, regions, socioeconomic backgrounds, and time periods? How might the writing process — and the way arguments, comparisons, and conclusions take unexpected turns throughout — be similar to growing up? In this course we will read works by bell hooks, Miranda July, Edward Said and others while engaging with journalism and documentary film centered around the lives and actions of youth around the world.
