Pop Culture & Social History of Teenagers – Photographic Youth Music Culture Archive (PYMCA) for Education
The Photographic Youth Music Culture Archive (PYMCA) is a specialist resource featuring over 40,000 exclusive photographs, moving images, texts, graphics, digital magazines and supplementary research.
With insight materials covering the last 150 years of Youth Culture, Youth Tribes and Social History, PYMCA is an interesting educational resource for many HE and FE subject areas from media to fashion, music to history, social sciences and much more. PYMCA for Education now introduces an exciting new redesign featuring an interactive Youth Culture timeline, video material, and music playlists. Visually browse through individual decades and genres of prolific youth culture history from the Teddy Boys of the 1950s to the Gonguro Girls of the 2000s.
PYMCA has agreed to make its full range of content available free of charge to our HE and FE community for at least the first year with a view to using the usage information to gauge appropriate pricing strategy for future years.
For 2015 onwards it is intended only to charge for more than 1,000 downloads per institution per annum. In return, users will be asked to register on the PYMCA website in order to provide their input into research projects on a voluntary basis.
