"Sobald Luca ins Quartier kommt, wird er verprügelt" – Positionierungen Jugendlicher in Erzählungen zu Pöbeleien und Jugenddelinquenz im öffentlichen Raum


Landolt, Sara (2013). "Sobald Luca ins Quartier kommt, wird er verprügelt" – Positionierungen Jugendlicher in Erzählungen zu Pöbeleien und Jugenddelinquenz im öffentlichen Raum. Geographica Helvetica, 68(3):161-169.

Abstract

Theoretically, the paper draws on conceptualisations of fluid identities and space; methodologically, it is informed by positioning analysis. The case of the delinquent youth clique “FX Fighters” shows that members produce their neighborhood as a challenging space and simultaneously position them- selves in this space: sometimes as powerful and fearless youths who dictate rules and keep others in check, sometimes as a youth clique whose vengeance fails. In addition, the paper demonstrates how assaults of violence are legitimated and normalised. In order to show the variance of such legitimating strategies and related subject positionings, material from additional group discussions on violent practices in public space is presented. Finally, the production of subjectivity as part of data construction is reflected.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
