This volume critically examines `subculture' in a variety of
Australian contexts, exploring the ways in which the terrain of
youth cultures and subcultures has changed over the past two
decades and considering whether `subculture' still works as a
viable conceptual framework for studying youth culture.Richly
illustrated with concrete case studies, the book is thematically
organised into four sections addressing i) theoretical concerns and
global debates over the continued usefulness of subculture as a
concept; ii) the important place of `belonging' in subcultural
experience and the ways in which belonging is played out across an
array of youth cultures; iii) the gendered experiences of young men
and women and their ways of navigating subcultural participation;
and iv) the ethical and methodological considerations that arise in
relation to researching and teaching youth culture and
subculture.Bringing together the latest interdisciplinary research
to combine theoretical considerations with recent empirical studies
of subcultural experience, Youth Cultures and Subcultures will
appeal to scholars and students across the social sciences.
