Both theoretically informed and empirically rich, Youth Urban Worlds explores how urban cultures affect political action amongst youth. Argues that urban cultures challenge the very meaning and contours of the political process. Includes ethnographies, delving into the perspectives and knowledges of racialized youth, urban farmers, and “voluntary risk takers,” like dumpster divers, building climbers, and student protestors. Theorizes that aesthetics are an increasingly crucial form of political action in the contemporary urban setting and explains the impact of aesthetics on the political. Examines the centrality of fun, warmth, aesthetics, and embodiment to these youth’s experience of being in the world. Explains how youth are able to practically and concretely impact the political process through the performance of risky and disruptive behavior.
