About

meThis is Steve Threadgold’s blog.

I’m a sociologist at University of Newcastle. My research interests focus on inequality and youth, especially the interplay between class, risks and governmental discourses.

My most recent research projects are on young people’s construction of ‘DIY Careers’ in networked music scenes and on the ways figures such as ‘hipster’ and ‘bogan’ are invoked in media to perform distinction whilst eschewing the very notion of class.

I am currently writing a book called Youth, Culture and Class for Routledge.
