About this product
- DescriptionThis book provides a concise introduction to the practical and theoretical complexities of studying urban youth culture today. Looking across disciplines such as anthropology, sociology, and education, Dimitriadis explores the ways urban youth have been framed in often limiting and problematic ways in the popular and academic imagination. Moving beyond critique alone, this highly accessible primer opens a discussion about what a truly powerful, emergent field of -critical youth studies- might look like. Looking toward the future of this field, this book discusses the most important methodological and substantive trends and issues scholars will be addressing w and in the years to come. The Studying Urban Youth Culture Primer is an indispensable text for students in a range of qualitative methods and urban education courses.
