Just-17

This is an issue of the once-popular girls’ magazine, Just-Seventeen.  In the archive of CCCS material that has been set up at the Cadbury Research Library there are piles of Just-Seventeens.  Students at the CCCS Untitled1saw such magazines bothculturally and politically important.  Figures like Angela McRobbie and Trevor Millum analysed them and showed how they often presented young women in negative ways.  This will be one of the themes that will be explored in an exhibition on CCCS at the Midland Arts Centre in May 2014.
