about this item

Based on papers presented to the International Sociological Association (ISA) Research Committee during the ISA World Congress of Sociology in Gothenburg, Sweden, in 2010 and Yokohama, Japan, in 2014, this volume provides 16 essays on the time/space dimension of young people's contemporary social practices in globalized cities. Anthropologists, sociologists, and other researchers from around the world outline innovative approaches to understanding the space-time dimension in young people's cultures and lifestyles from a transnational perspective. Particularly, they discuss young social actors who move across territories and social boundaries, such as activists in Europe, young people's participation in transnational meetings, and gangs in the Latino Atlantic; young social actors who live their global youth cultures in specific localities, such as Brazil, Lagos, Iran, and Indonesia, with specific discussion of road racing, tattoos, hip-hop culture, and schoolboy gangs; and young protestors in Greece, Cairo, Spain, Chile, Colombia, and Brazil.
