Show Summary Details


This chapter ties together the theories and research on music and youth cultures. It advocates a situational interactionist model for the study of everyday youth music cultures and media that conceptualises contexts, practices, involvement and accessibility in terms which support previous theoretical propositions and fieldwork/archival analyses. This model will then be applied to a more thorough examination of two central themes to have emerged in the course of this study: intergenerational narratives and localised performances.

Keywords: situational interactionist model; youth music cultures; intergenerational narratives; localised performances
