Profane Culture, Princeton University Press, 2014 / Aykırı Kültür, Ayrıntı Yayınları, 2022

Özet: A classic of British cultural studies, Profane Culture takes the reader into the worlds of two important 1960s youth cultures—the motor-bike boys and the hippies. The motor-bike boys were working-class motorcycle enthusiasts who listened to the early rock ‘n’ roll of the late 1950s. Hippies were middle-class drug-users with long hair and a love of progressive music. Both groups were involved in an unequal but heroic fight to produce meaning and their own cultural forms in the face of a larger society dominated by the capitalist media and commercialism. They were pioneers of cultural experimentation, the self-construction of identity, and the curating of the self, which, in different ways, have become so widespread today.

The Making of a Cultural Ethnographer

In his talk, Professor Paul E. Willis will briefly explain his academic and biographic formations as an ethnographer of daily life forms and situated conduct as they are closely intertwined with the development of British Cultural Studies at the famous Centre for Contemporary Cultural Studies at Birmingham University in the 1960s and 70s. He will go on to outline some of the main themes of his book and conclude by highlighting the contributions that a theorised cultural ethnographic method can make to the understanding of contemporary everyday life forms.
