Abstract:

Resistance of youth cultures is always a mooting point. By analyzing a distinctive university BBS youth culture, the author intends to answer how is the resistance of a youth culture possible when it occurs in a fast changing society like China. Data presented in this article were based on face-to-face in-depth interviews with fifteen student BBS users from four Chinese universities. Discourse analysis is used in analyzing the data. Conclusions are as follows: first, new technology, such as the BBS, empowers the students to constitute their own BBS language style and to resist the real contexts they live in; second, resistance can only be observed if it is placed in a specific contextual and historical moment; and third, as to the case of the BBS youth culture in China, contradiction between the real trends of the society and the governmental and intellectual discourses produces subject positions for the youth to resist the orthodox ideas and traditional values; that is, the resistance of this youth culture is intimately related to their immediate living contexts.
