Doing – Undoing – Redoing? the Everyday Representation of Gender Patterns in Youth Scenes
The question, to which extent gender-arrangements are affected in this context of hedonistic enjoyment, has not been systematically studied, yet. The research-project “Scenes, a Prototypical Social Field for (Re-) Negotiating Gender Arrangements?” will attend to this research gap. Initial findings will be presented. In doing so, we will discuss the question in how far gender-patterns are reactualized, ironized, questioned, tested, denied or even traditionalized in these three scenes. In this regard, we consider group-discussions the best method to (a) inquire gender-patterns and -arrangements that dominate and are considered self-evident within the field and to (b) capture their linguistic legitimization. Our goal is to facilitate a deeper understanding as to the question if, or in which way, scenes are a prototypical field for (re-) negotiations of gender-arrangements.
