Youth Culture and Private Space

Not yet rated | write a review
Youth Culture and Private Space explores the use, role and significance of personal and private spaces such as bedrooms in the lives of young people. Drawing on extensive research informed by ethnographic methods, Lincoln considers the place of 'the private' in youth cultural discourses, both historically and contemporarily, which until recently has remained largely absent from youth cultural research. The book considers the ways young people use their 'physical' bedrooms to 'mark out' their identities, for example, through the 'things' they have in their bedrooms and through their engagement in the media. Furthermore, Lincoln explores the meaning of personal and private space for young people 'beyond bedrooms', within the virtual worlds of social networking sites. These, she argues, can be considered an extension of young people's bedroom space.
