The 1950s "youth explosion" reached far beyond the United States: in countries as different as Japan and Britain, postwar economic and social development produced "new" kinds of youth. These young "folk devils" became the excuse for "moral panics" over issues such as juvenile delinquency, drugs, and racial miscegenation. Those discourses in turn created new resources for filmmakers: the violent energy of youth could be turned to political ends. In this class we will examine how some films from the late 1950s and early 1960s represented youth in Britain, Japan, and the USA. We will investigate the relation between the films and their industrial, social, and (cross-)cultural contexts for example their relation to popular music and "Americanization". In their final projects students will apply what they have learned about cultural studies and film as an audio-visual rhetoric to a particular group of films made over the past 45 years.
