Abstract: As the digital divide has narrowed, the internet — and social media — have become accessible to more disadvantaged populations, including drug dealers, gang members, and other street-involved individuals. As members of these groups increasingly use social media, their visibility is enhanced, something that can exacerbate a range of serious dangers. Based upon qualitative research focused on street-involved men living in Canada’s oldest and largest social housing complex - Regent Park - our presentation explores how in using social media these men reproduce and reinforce many of the dangers of life on the urban streets, while they also develop strategies to manage those risks. In the process, the street code goes virtual, dis-embedded from its originating physical location, it circulates on new media platforms, and occasionally becomes re-embedded onto those same streets, but with different inflections and implications.

Abstract: While in his early and general theory of interaction rituals, Randall Collins emphasised that social situations are both ’symbolic’ and ’material’, the latter dimension is largely absent from Collins’ theory of violence(Collins 2004; 1993: 214). Compared with criminology’s more recent situational studies of violence, it is noticeable that the analytical success of these studies is closely linked with understanding street violence as a spatial-situational phenomenon (Clarke 1997; Eck & Weisburd 1995; Bragand & Weisburd; 2010; Wikström et al. 2012; Sampson et al. 1997). In light of evidence for the spatial dimension of street violence, this paper takes its point of departure in a large study of Street Violence among youth in Copenhagen, Denmark (combining quantitative data from filed police reports (N = 900), data from CCTV and qualitative analysis of selected cases of street violence among youth in 2010-2012). We illuminate how the spatial, material and symbolic context of the situation is equally crucial to the outcome of the violent situation. Hence, we argue that the spatial characteristics of the violent situation constitute a fruitful addition to Collins’ micro-sociology on violence and serves as an crucial factor in explaining street violence among youth.

Abstract: Step Up 2: The Streets marks a departure from typical urban dance film, eliminating racial cooperation in favor of racial dominance. The underdogs struggling for acceptance are not minorities or poor people, but middle-class whites attending private school, expecting immediate acceptance because of their desire to dance. This paper analyzes the film’s implicit racial codes, messages about the availability of cultural art forms for adoption, and the inherent value of whiteness.
