Emergence of subcultures

Elizabeth James

Can I reveal people's identities through the structure of a subculture?

What is a subculture? In my opinion subcultures are a contributing factor to the emergence of certain trends. My project investigates the characteristics and lifecycle of a subculture: from its formation, to the height of its existence, to the acceptance into mainstream and its subsequent absorption into mainstream life. Having recognized characteristics of previous subcultures and by exploring subcultures that exist today, I present an insight into people's identity in modern society.
