Goods in a Divided State: Commodified Teens in Neil Shusterman's Unwind Series

Director’s Row H (Sheraton)
This project examines the ways in which the definitions of adolescence change when adults view teens solely as commodities in Neil Shusterman's Unwind series. The project will utilize such approaches as Louis Althusser’s theory of interpellation, Thomas Hine’s theory of what he calls the "teen mystique," and ideas of post-humanism.
