Youth drinking cultures in a digital world:Alcohol, social media and cultures of intoxication Chapter 2: Class, gender and young people’s alcohol consumption in a digital world

Linda Bailey

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

We provide an overview of how class and gender have been theorised in young
people’s drinking cultures across diff erent countries. We consider how recent
moral panics over young people’s public drinking are often highly gendered and
class-specifi c, problematising certain social groups of young people as ‘fl awed
consumers’ and ‘at risk’ groups. At present there is a small yet growing body of
research exploring the gendered nature of young people’s drinking cultures, but
there is very little work exploring how gender intersects with social class. Even
fewer studies have explored how gender and class play out in young people’s
online drinking cultures. We show that recent research is beginning to investigate the classed and gendered dimensions of youth drinking cultures on- and offline.
