『ハマータウンの野郎ども』の現代的視座 : 現代の〈野郎ども〉はいかに社会へと移行しているのか
The Contemporary Viewpoint of Learning to Labour : How do today's "Lads" transition to society?
transition to society
The aims of this article are to review the studies about today's "lads" in Western countries and get some suggestion for youth studies in Japan. After the publication of Learning to Labour by P. Willis, many researchers have studied about lads who are nonacademic, school-disaffeted white working class boys seeking to traditional masculinity of working class. However, by increasing of "feminized work" in recent structural change of economy, disappearance of traditional class cooperativity and development of individualisation, lads have had many difficulties to get working class jobs and transition to society. This leads to the question how today's lads seek to transition from "boyz to men." According to the earlier studies, they try to become working class men through the practice or restructuring of traditional subculture of regional working class in new circumstances instead of getting working class jobs. This implication needs us to reveal the meaning of transition from school to job or from "boyz to men" with diversity of each youth and social, economical and cultural context where they live. Then, the perspectives to practice of subculture are very useful to apprehend organically reflexivity, community and identity of youth.
