FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
A nationally recognized professor of American popular culture will present an interactive seminar Tuesday (Oct. 12) on "Creating and Marketing Youth: Youth Music and Culture in 20th Century America."
Tricia Rose, a professor of American studies at the University of California at Santa Cruz, will conduct the live session via satellite broadcast which will be aired at West Virginia University at Parkersburg in Room 2212. The 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. seminar is free and open to the public.
Dr. Rose will explore the relationship of race and youth culture, particularly youth music. She will link the development of rock-and-roll and rhythm-and-blues to changing social formations in the 1950s and 1960s. She will also explore the emergence of hip-hop and its relationship to both post-industrial urban American and suburban America from the 1980s to the present.
The program is hosted locally by WVU Parkersburg's chapter of Phi Theta Kappa honor society.
