  1. Hi Gayle

    I am a 4th year degree student at Birkbeck (University of London) my thesis looks at the demise of the “teen rebel” identity in terms of its “tribal” manifestations in popular culture (rockers, mods, punks, hip hopers etc) I’m very interested in your views. Would it be possible to send you a few questions I have brewing?

    Though I am far from a teen, ( i’m a career popular musician.) I now work in education as a music teacher. I have 2 pre teen children.

    I am very interested in the notions of the closed generation gap, homogenisation of culture and the colonisation of virtual space by teens.

    Very Best

    Graham

    • Thanks so much Graham for letting me know about your work. I have a draft of the book if you’d like to read it and comment. Actually, it’s two books, one on culture and one on activism. Email me at gkimball at csuchico.edu. Also, here are the book questions in hopes that you’ll give them to your children, students, etc. I’ll try and send some chapters from earthhavenchico@hotmail.

      Greetings from California. I’m writing a book about how global youth are transforming our future. This is your chance to be heard. Many of you have wonderful suggestions for how to make our world a better to live in, so I’m asking people age 19 and under to respond to the following questions. I have a draft of the book if you would like to critique it, as well as a draft about how to cope with test anxiety and stress.

      Please also forward to kids and their teachers so they can be part of the global youth book.
      Thanks, Gayle Kimball, Ph.D. gkimball@csuchico.edu

      1. If you could ask a question of the wisest person in the world,
      what would you ask her or him about life?
      2. What bothers you in your daily life? What practice best helps you stay calm?
      3. If there was one thing you could change about adults, what
      would it be?
      4. What would you like to change about yourself?
      5. What do you like to do for fun?
      6. When have you felt most loved by someone else?
      7. Why do you think you’re here on earth; what’s your purpose?
      How are you influenced by global media (TV, Internet, advertisements, etc?)
      8. On a scale of 1 to 100, how highly would you grade your
      school? Why?
      9. What work would you like to do when you’re an adult?
      10. If you were the leader of your country, what changes would you make?
      11. How is your generation different from your parents’ age group?
      12. Imagine you get to write on a T-shirt going on a trip around the world. What do you want your T-mail to say to people?

      What questions are missing that you’d like to answer? Your email. . . . . . .
      What first name would you like used in the book to quote you?
      How old are you?
      Girl or boy?
      What city and country do you live in?
      Gracias! Merci! Danke! Arrigato! Chi chi!
