New publication by Dr. Steffen Zdun

Veröffentlicht am 6. August 2019
Steffen Zdun (IKG) has published a new paper facing "The Fluid Nature of Street Culture: Non-Violent Participation, Changes in Adult Life, and Crumbling Ethnic Barriers in Germany"

This paper examines changes in the practice of street culture among non-violent young adult men. Many individuals who participate in street culture behave and talk in a pretty rough way among each other and act almost aggressively. This is done for establishing a certain reputation and self-image that relates to street culture rules and it is even widespread among non-violent players of this milieu. A comprehensive look on their behavior includes modifications of street culture practices in adult life. Another aspect of the fluid nature of street culture are crumbling ethnic barriers in this milieu in Germany. The latter contributes to further modifications, for instance, in social contacts and language use. The author provides supportive evidence from the existing literature and field work he has done in Germany.
