Youth street cultures: Between online and offline circuits

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

A significant amount of research has demonstrated how cultural activities and expressions traditionally associated with the realm of the street have been transferred to the online domain. To the extent that research on youth has mainly focused on the urban context, it isn't surprising that the urban public space has been recurrently seen as the privileged stage for the manifestation of youth cultures. The ubiquitous presence of the internet and digital devices means that we are constantly connected, making it senseless to speak of a split between the offline and online worlds. Youth cultures, the street and digital networks are dynamic entities. The daily experience of young people is strongly defined by the presence of digital technologies, and being connected to the digital world is an increasingly common ingredient of their daily life. In the Western world, youth is commonly seen as a stage of transition, the passage from infancy into adulthood.
