SILBA, Malvina. Subordinate identitites: age, class, gender and cultural consumption. Ultima décad. [online]. 2011, vol.19, n.35, pp.145-168. ISSN 0718-2236.

This work intends to discuss an approach to the problem of identity in young men and women from popular sectors into three categories: age, class and gender, which would allow a central theme from which these subjects experience the condition of subordination. The ethnographic approach, the core of this discussion, will contrast the native sense of the subjects that are the subject of this discussion, certain cultural images that circulate today youth  and finding in them  a condensation of «social evils» that would be affecting and endangering the «normal» functioning of societies. Together, and against the subordinate question; can a subordinate subject have their say? The objective of this study intends to investigate the extent to which intellectuals are willing to listen to various forms of communication among the subjects in question.

Keywords : youth; subordinate experiments; everyday practices.
