About this book

Siân Lincoln considers the use, role and significance of private spaces in the lives of young people. Drawing on extensive ethnographic research, she explores the place of 'the private' in youth cultural discourses, both historically and contemporarily, that until now have remained largely absent in youth cultural research.

Reviews

'In Youth Culture and Private Space, Sian Lincoln presents an informed, incisive and thoroughly absorbing analysis of the role of bedrooms as 'identity spaces' for young people. Marshalling a wealth of original research, she shows how personal and private spaces are crucial sites for the articulation of individual and collective identities, and the book is likely to be a key text for anyone interested in studying, teaching or researching contemporary youth culture.'

- Bill Osgerby, Professor in Media, Culture and Communications, London Metropolitan University, UK

'Sian Lincoln's study on young people's bedroom culture is innovative and personal. She uncovers the bedroom as a shrine of pleasure, celebration, contemplation, communication and experimentation. Her excellent ethnography points out the dual public and private space of the bedroom where identities are forged. Youth Culture and Private Space is an essential book for researchers, teachers and students.'

- Shane Blackman, Reader in Cultural Studies, Canterbury Christ Church University, UK

'This ethnographic study gives a fascinating insight into the meanings of an under-researched aspect of domestic culture. The book also provides an invaluable corrective to research on youth subcultures that overwhelmingly locate debates about youth and identity in relation to the public sphere and demonstrates how home spaces play a key role in the negotiation and experience of young people's identities. Strongly recommended to anyone interested in either young peoples identities or contemporary home cultures.'

- Joanne Hollows, Reader in Media and Cultural Studies, Nottingham Trent University, UK
