Pop culture and kids in focus

Do Paris Hilton, The Simpsons, Facebook, mobile phones, trendy brands and sexy messages have more influence over children than parents?

This is one of the questions to be explored by Southern Cross University (SCU) Associate Professor Karen Brooks at a free public lecture next Wednesday, April 30, at SCUs Whitebrook Theatre from 7pm.

Professor Brooks, who has an international reputation in popular culture and is a regular commentator on youth culture, will explore the complex relationship that tots, tweens and teens have with popular culture. For bookings phone Wendy Broome on 6620 3125 or email wendy.broome@scu.edu.au by next Monday, April 28.
