AHRC Subcultures Network:
5th September 2014 – John Moores University, Liverpool, UK
Please find below details of a symposium entitled ‘In/Between Spaces’ to be held at Liverpool John Moores University, Liverpool, UK on Friday 5th September 2014, organised by the AHRC Subcultures Network: www.reading.ac.uk/history/research/Subcultures/subcultures.aspx
The symposium will explore the role of ‘space’ in youth cultures, both urban and domestic, with a particular focus on under-examined private and semi-private spaces such as bedrooms, virtual chat rooms and social network sites and young people’s participation in them. The symposium will examine the ways in which private and semi-private spaces interconnect with one another and different public space and will trace trajectories through – and between – the multiple spaces that forge cultural, social and political identities.
Confirmed speakers include Michael Bull ( University of Sussex), Robert Macdonald (Teesside University), Tracy Shildrick (University of Leeds), Robert Hollands (University of Newcastle), Brady Robards (University of Tasmania), Iain Aitch, Rupa Huq (Kingston University) and Joanne Neary (University of Glasgow).
