Overview

"In Digital Youth the author argues that many youth are using the Web to experiment with and deploy a number of surprising rhetorical strategies that tell us much about their vision for the new communications technologies and the emerging literacy practices they are using to engage that technology." The volume examines both the politics imbedded in the representations of youth and technology and the actual practices of communication and meaning making of these "digital youth." To approach the subject, the author draws on the work of three fields of critical inquiry - cultural studies, subcultural studies, and the emerging field of cyberculture studies - to generate a series of questions for critically analyzing various literacy practices performed on and with the Web.
