Abstract:The dissertation provides a case study and an analytical account of Andy Warhol's impact on rock and roll style. It first examines the rise of pop art as a form and ethos in America during the 1960s. In so doing it focuses specifically on the art, film, and sculpture projects of Warhol and the subsequent subculture that emerged at his Factory studio. Next, the dissertation describes the influence that Warhol and his subculture had on "glitter rock" musicians of the 1970s, most of whom were directly inspired by Warhol and his followers. The case study concludes with an explanation of ways glitter rock helped to form and create a widespread and highly visible youth subculture in both the United States and Great Britain in the 1970s.
The theoretical chapters that follow the case study both explain and analyze the body of work on youth subcultures that has emerged from the Center For Contemporary Cultural Studies in Britain. By pointing to some of the theoretical shortcomings of British cultural studies the dissertation offers a reconceptualization of the major concepts found in cultural studies analyses of youth subcultures. It concludes by offering a theory of production and a method for contextualizing British subculture theory in relation to American youth subcultures.
