Book Description

The collection brings together texts of Brazilian researchers who are dedicated to themes related to studies of youth cultures: sociabilities, subcultures, identities and belonging, pop culture, social movements, migration, consumption and materialities, generational exchanges, media representations and digital media, among others.

The objective is to promote a broad dialogue that includes fields of knowledge such as Communication and Social Sciences, as well as local perspectives that represent the huge and rich diversity of the Brazilian regions. At the same time, the book proposes to discuss the reflexivity of such local youth cultures in the face of a global context that challenges, with ruptures and permanencies, the very idea of youth. The book seeks to fill the gap of a selection of scientific texts by Brazilian authors, about Brazilian youth cultures, aimed at foreign researchers.
