The Age of Adolescence: Fact or Fiction?

Explore the meaning of adolescence and delve into the history of its creation. This includes discussing its beginnings, why and how the concept of adolescence was created and the influence it has had on both popular culture and academia. Discuss what society was like when adolescence did not exist, for when you live in a time when 50 is considered a grand old age and (if female) you’re married off at 13, there is no room for the identity crisis we now define as adolescence. With these ideas, analyse whether adolescence is just a social construct or scientific fact.
