    Project Details

    Description

    The underlying notion, that looks carry cultural meaning, and thus is important regarding our definition of 'the other' and 'ourselves' is an important perspective in this project. Inspired by the framework in Dick Hebdige: Subculture: The Meaning of Style this project has its starting point in the assumption that clothing, make up, hairdo, movements, activities, social practice and language are stylistically imprinted and concretely performed cultural moderations and negotiations. The aim of this project is to examine the parts young female immigrants play in intercultural negotiations in Denmark. How do they cope with the public focus on their style and appearance? PhD project.
