discussion topic
Discussion Topic

Critically debate the notion of lifestyle and how this can be differentiated from other ‘forms’ of identity.

Discuss how the concept of lifestyle relates to other understandings of identity such as subculture and neo-tribalism in a postmodern world.

Critically discuss the means by which the body can be used as a communicative tool drawing upon examples from the entertainment and events industries.
