The Youth, Sound And Space page is mainly designed as a 'crossroads' of sorts for young academics and researchers who have common interests in youth cultures that involve musical practices and the construction of social space.
The group of people involved is diverse - those involved are working in research arenas such as sociology, musicology, media and communications studies, performance studies and human geography - but also djs and musicians involved within music scenes in Australia.
The group, and this site, primarily serve as a forum for debate and discussion about youth cultures in an informal, but academically rigorous manner.
If you are researching or working in this area and would be interested in being involved in the group or contributing to this page, email Kurt Iveson with a short, informal bio on your musical and/or academic interests. Participation is open to and welcome from all people, academics or not.
