Gender and electronic dance music: experiences, histories and “portraits” of female clubbers
AbstractThe main objective of this work is to understand the construction of gender identities in the field of youth (sub)cultures linked to the participation in electronic music festivals, in particular, drum’n’bass, techno andtrance, in order to understand the complex intersections between gender and social class and the internal structure of club (sub)cultures. The internal structuring process is therefore considered in a relational and multidimensional approach, using ethnographical approaches, biographic interviews and sociological portraits in order to detect transfers and discrepancies between pre-clubbing socialising and the acquisition of new (?) dispositions in the parties’ contexts.
