MORAES, Bruna Rabello de  e  WEINMANN, Amadeu de Oliveira. Notes on the history of adolescence. Estilos clin. [online]. 2020, vol.25, n.2, pp. 280-296. ISSN 1415-7128.

This paper finds its origins in recent debates about adolescence. It takes as a theoretical premise that the concept of adolescence is built by each culture. In other words, we assume that what is meant as adolescence always depends of the context where it takes its origin. In order to listen social speech about this subject, we focus our efforts over some historical studies regarding the adolescence, as well as over some of the cultural productions that formulated what each historical time meant as adolescence. From the transformations and repetitions found, we define the following categories, which seem crucial regarding our object of study: initiation rituals and adolescence; initial marks; feared youth; metaphor of social change; and teenage subculture. Finally, we suggest that adolescence may be, in our societies, as a hinge between the anxieties we conjure and the possibility of finding a symbolic destination for these anxieties.
