Colorado College Professor Co-Authors Book on Digital Youth Culture

C.J. Pascoe, assistant sociology professor, is co-author of a new book, "Hanging Out, Messing Around, and Geeking Out: Kids Living and Learning with New Media." The book provides a grounded and nuanced description of today's digital youth culture and practices as they negotiate their identity, peer-based relationships, and relationships with adults. The data comes from an ambitious three-year ethnographic investigation into how young people are living and learning with new media in varied settings-at home, in after school programs, and in online spaces. The book, published by MIT Press, was written as a collaborative effort by members of the Digital Youth Project, a three-year research effort funded by the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
