Imagining Romance: Young People's Cultural Models of Romance and Love.
Bachen, Christine M.; Illouz, Eva
Critical Studies in Mass Communication, v13 n4 p279-308 Dec 1996
Shows that long before it translates into actual behavior, the content and forms that romance assumes in the postmodern nexus of media and the market shape children's romantic imagination. Explores how children's imagined vision of romance moved from one molded by media to one characterized by a tension between what media promised and their growing understanding of love's complexities.
