Postmodern era and globalization
Postmodern Era and Globalization

Allan Luke argues that new tools are needed to explain and understand “a set of new unprecedented historical phenomena and new “social facts” or globalized, multi-lingual/muti-cultural, post-fordist, post-everything cultures, economies and communities” that make the humanist theory of self, developmentalism behaviorism, cognitive theory and other theories obsolete.

He points out that program would be an afterthought based on some concepts of a universal human subject, who’s usually white, male, and middle class.


More postmodern era
More Postmodern Era

Societies have changed after WWII.

Fredric Jameson believes “that the emergence of postmodernism is closely related to the emergence of the new moment of late, consumer or multinational capitalism.

Change contributed to the postindustrial society under late capitalism, to a consumer society influenced and dominated by multinational corporations rather than nation states , to an interlinked globalized world that is characterized by media and technology.


Postmodern feminist perspectives
Postmodern Feminist Perspectives

  • Challenges the “norms.”

  • Ignores the particular experiences of females and position adolescents as a single group whereby the female is subsumed under what have been mostly male norms.

    • Mica Nava- examines gender differences and argues that because adolescent females are more regulated and controlled. Nava considers that gender is as significant as social class in structuring how adolescent males and females experience youth and the processes in adulthood.

Postmodern era
Postmodern Era

  • Youth cultures are emerging due to the impact of globalization.

    • Mass Media and informational technology, rather than simply as a result of the process of marginalization or alienation.

    • Giroux (1990) argues that new information and communication technologies, through emphasizing individualism, creates both a sense of alienation and of boredom with school which can no longer compete with such exciting technology.


Postmodern technology
Postmodern Technology

Through the impact of globalizing effects of information technology, postmodern marketing, consumerism and mas media, adolescent perceptions, expectations and experiences in many countries are linked and sometimes become homogenized such that a postmodern youth culture is, arguably emerging.

Contrary to the all-knowing teacher, and in the manner that threatens traditional lines of teacher authority, there is an unprecedented dilemma for many teachers when the kids probably know more about the informational technologies than most teachers.
