The Borders of Subculture : Resistance and the Mainstream, Hardback Book


This book aims to revisit the notion of subculture for the 21st century, reinterpreting it and extending its scope.

On the one hand, the notion of resistance is redefined and applied to contemporary practices of cultural production and entrepreneurship.

On the other hand, contributors reconsider the connection of subcultures to everyday culture, exploring more mainstream forms of cultural production and consumption across a wider range of social groups.

As a consequence, this book extends the scope to look beyond the white, male, adolescent, urban cultures identified with earlier subcultural studies.

Contributors also examine fusions and crossovers between Western and non-Western cultural practices.
