Ungdom och kulturell modernisering
1990 (Swedish)Collection (editor) (Other academic)
This is the second of a series of reports from the research program Youth culture in Sweden, FUS. In its first text, the youth culture researcher and program initiator Johan Fornäs from Stockholm tries to construct a polydimensional theory of modernity, mainly based upon the works of Jürgen Habermas and Thomas Ziehe. He analyzes three different dimensions: objective, social, cultural and subjective levels; early, middle and late phases of the modern; and conceptual forms like modernity, modernization and modernism. Ulf Boëthius, a literary researcher in Stockholm, then shows how the relation between ”high” and ”low” has developed within European culture, from the dicotomization between popular and elite culture after the Middle Ages, over a second dicotomization in the 19th century literary public sphere, up to the recent transgressions within late modern culture. Modernity concepts are shown to be useful for connecting the way turning points and tendencies in youth and popular culture have been discussed by different historians.
