Socialisation and the 'Culture of Fear'

 

How we fear is closely linked to ideas about morality and personhood. It is for this reason that the way we socialise young people is of great significance in understanding the culture of fear that prevails in the 21st century. The aim of this talk is to explore their influence of parenting and education on the way that society expresses its fears about the problems of everyday life.

 

 

 

 

 

The Rules of Fear in 21st Century Society

 

The way we fear and what we dread is mediated through social and cultural norms. This talk discusses the distinctive features of the culture of fear at the present time. It explores the symbols and rituals through which modern fear is performed in everyday life. It attempts to answer the question of how fear works in the 21st century.
