This lecture & learning time will explore this current generation of youth culture in the U.S.(born after 1990) and give a socio-historical account of the philosophical, theological, & cultural constructs within this generation. Dr. Hodge will also share his latest research which has taken place over the last five years in which he has interviewed over 145 youth from this generation, analyzed and coded over 500 films, musical artists, and contemporary commercials to grasp the complex meanings that this generation of youth find important. Come here Dr. Hodge as he will give insight into this rising generation which has been labeled the “largest group of non-religious youth” to discover what this might signal for ministry, higher education, and missions in the 21st century.
