By Julie Passanante Elman

The youngster has usually seemed in tradition as an apprehensive figure,
the repository for American desires and worst nightmares, right away at the brink
of good fortune and approaching failure. Spotlighting the “troubled teenager” as a website of
pop cultural, scientific, and governmental intervention, Chronic Youth
traces the teen as a determine during which huge threats to the normative
order were negotiated and contained. 


Examining tv, well known novels, technology journalism, new
media, and public coverage, Julie Passanante Elman exhibits how the teen became
a cultural touchstone for transferring notions of able-bodiedness,
heteronormativity, and neoliberalism within the overdue 20th century. by way of the late
1970s, media industries in addition to policymakers begun constructing new problem-driven
‘edutainment’ prominently that includes narratives of disability—from the
immunocompromised The Boy within the Plastic Bubble to ABC’s After School
and teenage sick-lit. even if this conjoining of disability
and early life begun as a storytelling conference, incapacity grew to become a lot more
than a metaphor because the technique of medicalizing formative years intensified through the
1990s, with parenting books containing neuro-scientific warnings approximately the
incomplete and unstable “teen brain.” project a cultural heritage of youth
that combines incapacity, queer, feminist, and comparative media experiences, Elman
offers a provocative new account of ways American cultural producers,
policymakers, and doctors have mobilized discourses of disability
to solid youth as a treatable “condition.” by way of tracing the teen’s uneven
passage from postwar insurgent to twenty first century sufferer, Chronic Youth shows
how youngsters grew to become a lynchpin for a tradition of perpetual rehabilitation and
neoliberal governmentality.
