Beschreibung

This invaluable addition to Springer s Explorations of Educational Purpose series is a revelatory ethnographic account of the visual material culture of contemporary youths in North America. The author s detailed study follows apparently dissimilar groups (black and Latino/a in a New York City after-school club, and white and Indigenous in a small Canadian community) as they inflect their nascent identities with a sophisticated sense of visual material culture in today s globalized world. It provides detailed proof of how much ethnography can add to what we know about young people s development, in addition to its potential as a model to explore new and significant avenues in pedagogy. Supported by a wealth of ethnographic evidence, the analysis tracks its subjects responses to strikingly diverse material ranging from autobiographical accounts by rap artists to the built environment. It shows how young people from the world s cultural epicenter, just like their counterparts in the sub-Arctic, construct racial, geographic and gender identities in ways that are subtly responsive to what they see around them, blending localized characteristics with more widely shared visual references that are now universally accessible through the Web. The work makes a persuasive case that youthful engagement with visual material culture is a relational and productive activity that is simultaneously local and global, at once constrained and enhanced by geography, and possesses a potent and life-affirming authenticity. Densely interwoven with young people s perspectives, the author s account sets out an innovative and interdisciplinary conceptual framework affording fresh insights into how today s youth assimilate what they perceive to be significant.Supported by a wealth of ethnographic evidence, the analysis tracks its subjects responses to strikingly diverse material ranging from autobiographical accounts by rap artists to the built environment.

Pressestimmen

Kristen Eglinton has produced a gripping book full of both theory and scintillating perceptions drawn from a beautifully crafted ethnography of youth culture in two contrasting locations, New York City and the Yukon Territory. Her central thesis that youth are active agents continuously constructing their worlds is born out by her highly reflexive accounts or stories. These have the quality of a novel in both their clarity of perception of what is going on but - and this is what is so exceptional about this book - with a vivid sense of her own presence and the impact that the situation has on her and her ability to perceive. At the end of the account readers will feel that they actually know the subjects well enough to recognise them in the streets and to take up Eglinton's conversations with them. This is an excellent model for reflexive anthropology and cultural studies.

Nick Stanley, Research Fellow Department of Africa, Oceania and the Americas, The British Museum, London

Seldom do you find a book on youth identities that manages to achieve theoretical sophistication, methodological innovation, empirical depth and analytical rigour. Youth identities, Localities, and Visual Material Culture: Making Selves, Making Worlds achieves all four with aplomb . Eglinton's sensitive engagement with young people's lived experience in the Yukon and New York City deepens our understanding of the 'landscapes' that shape young lives and the visual cultures these youth negotiate, produce and perform. It offers a too seldom explored analysis of the shifts that must necessarily occur if educators and youth practitioners are to be contextually relevant, and offers participatory visual ethnography as both methodological and pedagogical practice. Written with noticeable personal investment, relational sensitivity and intellectual clarity, Youth identities is an important book and the first extended critical analysis of the possibilities for bringing into educational spaces the cultural lives of young people.

Sharlene Swartz, Research Director, Human Sciences Research Council, South Africa and adjunct Associate Professor, Department of Sociology, University of Cape Town.

Visual material culture, if it is to have pedagogical significance, urgently needs to draw upon the knowledge created through Eglinton's ground breaking ethnographic enquiry. Theory, methodology and understanding are all advanced in a work that makes a compelling case for the development of an 'ethnographic pedagogy' that can do justice to youth identities by examining the unofficial curriculum rooted in local place. The unfolding story comes as a gift to a wide range of constituencies: those interested in identity politics and policy makers, youth studies scholars, arts educators, participant ethnographers, human geographers of space and place and even those concerned with art education as a radical form of visual culture. Eglinton's generosity of tone, elegance of writing, vivid analytical descriptions and incisive arguments will give much pleasure and much to think about.

John Finney, University of Cambridge

As educators in both schools and community programs, scholars of visual/material culture, and youth studies this groundbreaking and indispensable book provides a much needed understanding of how youth learn about and construct their identities in today's global world. By bringing the voices of youth to the forefront Eglinton asks us to place youth at the center of pedagogical and theoretical discussions and rethink youth engagement as active, imaginative and transformative, always in relation to place as simultaneously local and global.

Dipti Desai, Associate Professor and Director of the Graduate Program in Art Education at New York University.

Eglinton's remarkable account of the lives of young people in places as diverse as New York City and the Yukon is probably the most methodologically sound pieces of writing on the subject to date. Using ethn
