FISCHER, Rosa Maria Bueno. Media, youth and cultural memory. Educ. Soc. [online]. 2008, vol.29, n.104, pp.667-686. ISSN 0101-7330. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0101-73302008000300003.
This text aims to discuss relations between memory, media and youth. I discuss dates from a research with Brazilian students about their cultural memories, alterity and audiovisual products in our culture. Theoretical references are concepts from Henri Bergson, Andreas Huyssen, Maria Rita Kehl and Michel Foucault. I put forward the argument that production of subjectivity, in our times, is narrowly related to the experience with images and texts from different media. Technologies of communication and information offer an important source to memories construction, in order to shape our lives and our differences.
Keywords : Youth; Memory; Culture; Media; Alterity.
